Police have responded to two incidents of non-compliance at a Hobart quarantine hotel this weekend.
Yesterday afternoon, security at the hotel contacted police after a Glenorchy man, who had recently returned from Queensland and was required to complete 14 days hotel quarantine, attempted to leave the hotel premises.
He was apprehended by security at the hotel and received an infringement notice from police.
Last night police were again called by security who advised that a Claremont man, who had recently returned from Queensland and was required to complete mandatory hotel quarantine, was found to have left the premises.
Police arrested the man at his home in Claremont later in the evening. He was charged with COVID-related offences and bailed to complete the remainder of his quarantine at the hotel as required.
There is no indication that any members of the Tasmanian community were at risk during either incident.

How amazing is this?
You may have already seen Mary's awesome creation of the Queensland Ambulance Service badge on their Facebook page, but she has put her talent to the test again to create the QPS Service logo completely out of LEGO.
Mary said that she her artwork was her way of thanking those on the frontline for keeping everyone safe during the ongoing COVID-19 response efforts.
Thank you, Mary! Can't wait to see what you come up with next 💙

Police are seeking the assistance of the public to help track down a tradie's stolen tools.
Between 10pm on Tuesday 11 and 10am on Wednesday 12 August, a shed at a Port Noarlunga home was broken into and a stack of AEG toolboxes were stolen.
The toolboxes contained thousands of dollars' worth of hand and power tools. All tools are engraved with the owner's name and phone number on the battery clip, under where the battery is attached. The surname on the engraving is "Jongenelis".
The tools are mostly Milwaukee brand, with a few others, including Bosch.
Police believe the theft relates to an ongoing crime series in the Port Noarlunga and Christies Beach area and ask people to keep an eye out for suspicious behaviour, and report it to police on 131 444, day or night.
