Colorado Man Arrested for Violating Quarantine

The Maui Police Department has arrested a Colorado man for Rules and Orders.

Officials say 23-year-old Dalton Hielscher was arrested on December 5 at about 11:19 a.m.

Investigation reveals that on December 4, Hielscher flew into Maui.  Upon arrival, he did not have a negative pre-travel Covid-19 test, as required under Governor Ige’s sixteenth emergency proclamation. As such, Hielscher began his mandatory 14-day Travel Quarantine at a Kahului Hotel. 

On December 5, Hielscher was contacted by the quarantine call center. He indicated he had to check out of the hotel and did not have any means for accommodations for the remainder of the mandatory quarantine.  

Hielscher was subsequently arrested and voluntarily elected to return to Colorado. MPD transported the man to the airport for his departure.

In Maui County, there are current travel restrictions and mask mandates. Visitors and returning residents are reminded to check the most current emergency proclamations issued by Governor David Ige and Mayor Michael Victorino, and other travel requirements at Hawaii.gov and Mauicounty.gov.
