A Northern Colorado woman was arrested in Hawaii for allegedly disobeying the quarantine order.

The Maui Police Department said Tara Trufino, 23, was arrested at 1:40 a.m. on May 16 after someone called 911 for a person on the property who "refused to leave."

According to her Facebook, she attended the University of Northern Colorado for vocal jazz and physics. She also says she attended Colorado State University for Microbiology and Philosophy.

Maui police say when Trufino landed in Maui, she signed a paper acknowledging Hawaii's 14-day quarantine rules for travelers, though she did not comply. The rule put in place by Maui Mayor Michael Victorino states that anyone arriving to the island after March 26 must self-quarantine for 2 weeks.

 Violation of the quarantine order could result in a $5,000 fine and a year in prison, according to the Hawaii Tourism Authority. Trunfio's bail was set at $4,000.
This is a developing story.
