HONOLULU (KHON) — A California woman suspected of violating the state’s travel quarantine order is in police custody.
Fifty-one-year-old Misty Lynn Beutler of Moorepark, California, arrived in Honolulu on May 9 with her son at a Hawaii Kai condo, according to the Governor’s Office.
A resident of the complex reported seeing the woman and her son unloading luggage that day. Two days later, the same witness reported seeing the pair enter the condo lobby carrying beach equipment. Then on Wednesday, the witness said she saw Beutler walking her son’s dog.
On Thursday morning, May 22, investigators went to the complex to interview witnesses. As they were doing so, they saw Beutler and her son come out of the elevator and attempt to walk out of the building. She was arrested, booked, and charged.
“We again ask all visitors and returning residents to follow both the 14-day quarantine rule and all emergency rules in place right now. In addition to my office, law enforcement agencies across the State have cited hundreds of people for emergency rules violations and have made dozens of arrests for violating the travel quarantine. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in these efforts,” commented Hawaii Attorney General Clare Connors commented.
Her bail is set at $2,000.
