Perth woman who hid in truck to enter WA from Victoria JAILED

A Perth woman snuck from Victoria in the back of a truck into Western Australia to avoid quarantine.

After being convicted Tuesday, Asher Vander Sanden, 28, will be spending six months and one day behind bars.

She admitted coming from Victoria to sneak into WA by hiding in a truck.

Earlier in the month, Vander Sanden was given an exemption from entering WA from Victoria but was forced to complete a 14-day isolation period in hotel quarantine at her own expense.

When she failed to arrive at Perth Airport, police found her at home besides her partner.

 

In reaction to his second wave of infections, Western Australia cracked down on the criteria for people entering from Victoria.

The new rules tightened who is entitled to arrive in WA, and those who are expected to complete compulsory quarantine of hotels.

Before the new regulations, residents returning could finish their periods of isolation at their homes.

WA has also recently postponed controls to be lightened, given low cases of coronavirus.
