Three Visitors to Hawaii were arrested According to reports from the Dept. of Public Safety and the AG’s Office in two different incidents.

Two visitors were arrested last Friday at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, accused of trying to bribe airport screeners to allow them to bypass the State’s mandatory Safe Travels rules.

According to reports from the Dept. of Public Safety and the AG’s Office, 29-year-old Johntrell White of Simmesport, LA and 28-year-old Nadia Bailey of Baton Rouge arrived in Hawai‘i without valid COVID-19 exemptions or pre-tests. White allegedly told an airport screener he would give her $2,000 to pass through without having to quarantine. Bailey also allegedly told the same screener she would throw in an additional $1,000 to let them both through without quarantining.

The screener alerted deputy sheriffs, who arrested them both for bribery. White and Bailey were booked and released and immediately flew back to the mainland. The attorney general’s investigation is continuing.

Also, on Friday, Special Agents from the AG’s Investigations Division arrested a 44-year-old Michigan visitor for violating quarantine rules. Agents were alerted by a Waikīkī area hotel that Anthony Johnson of Rouge River did not show up at his designated place of quarantine and in fact had checked into another hotel to circumvent the quarantine rules.

Johnson was tracked to the Kailua-Lanikai boat ramp and was arrested just before he’d planned to go swimming. His bail was set at $2,000.
