21.07.21. What springs to mind is the many movie escape scenes from German concentration camps during WWII. Police have charged a 39-year-old Queensland man after he allegedly fled hotel quarantine in Perth by escaping through a window. Police allege Travis Jay Myles made a makeshift rope by tying together bed sheets, and then exited via the window. Mr Myles arrived in WA on a flight from Brisbane on Monday afternoon without completing a G2G pass. He completed an application upon arrival at Perth airport, but it was refused because he did not meet the entry requirements. He was taken to a hotel in Rivervale to stay overnight ahead of a scheduled flight back to Queensland. However, police say Mr Myles managed to escape from his hotel room at about 12:45am today. Officers found him on Beaufort Street in Mt Lawley eight hours later.

Mr Myles — who has since returned a negative test result for COVID-19 — was charged with failing to comply with a direction and providing false or misleading information.
He appeared in the Perth Magistrates Court via an audio-link on Tuesday afternoon.
He did not apply for bail and was remanded in custody until early August when his 14-day quarantine period will have ended, allowing him to appear in court in person.
