Agents say the pair attempted to check into one hotel on Tuesday without evidence of a COVID-19 test or exemption. After being told they needed to go into mandatory quarantine they refused to check in and left.
The alert resulted in agents learning the couple’s location. They had checked into another hotel on the pretense of being Hawai’i residents.
Bail has been set at $2,000 each and as of now the pair were still in custody, unable to post bail.MORE NEWS: Body Of Teen Who Went Missing While Swimming In American River Found
