Men arrested, agree to return to California

Two California men volunteered to leave Maui after they were arrested Wednesday for violating travel quarantine rules, police said.

Joe Huerta, 60, and Josiah Huerta, 31, both of El Monte, arrived on Maui without approved negative pre-travel COVID-19 tests and without a lodging to complete the mandatory 10-day travel quarantine, police said.

After being transported to the Wailuku Police Station for processing, both men agreed to fly back to California, according to police.
