Australian escapes with knotted sheets from quarantine hotel

A 39-year-old Australian escaped from the hotel where he was locked in Perth with the help of knotted sheets because he was unable to show a special pass required in connection with the corona measures upon arrival in Western Australia. Travis Jay Miles arrived from the east of the country in Perth on Monday and was denied access to the Land. He was transferred to a hotel destined for compulsory quarantine pending his flight back to Queensland on Tuesday.

But he didnt take that one, because Miles escaped by lowering himself from four floors high along the sheets to freedom. However, it only lasted 8 hours, as the police tracked him in the suburb of Mount Lawley and took him to a real prison. He has been tested negatively for the coronavirus, but now has to go to jail until early August because the official two-week quarantine will expire.


He was brought to a judge through an image link on Tuesday and is accused of failing to follow official ordinances and giving false information to the authorities. When the quarantine time is over, he may appear in person in court again.
