California Couple Arrested for Quarantine Violation
This morning, Special Agents from the AG’s Investigative Division arrested 46-year-old Daniel George Kanaan and 48-year-old Lira Kanaan, both of Walnut Creek, California. The pair was arrested for violation of the State’s mandatory 14-day quarantine rule.

Residents of Waimanalo began reporting their activities to the group, Hawai‘i Quarantine Kapu Breakers, which in turn informed the investigations division. Residents were said to be angered by their “brazen,” actions, including swimming in the ocean every day since their arrival on O‘ahu on July 7. The suspects’ bail was set at $2,000 each, which they posted, and were then released.
