Police Find Quarantine Violator at ATM ATM領大量現金被疑車手 原係居檢偷跑

On the 25th, Miaoli police came upon a man withdrawing a large sum of money at an ATM late at night, only to find he was actually violating quarantine regulations. The man faces a maximum fine of NT$1 million.


After the man is done withdrawing cash from the ATM, he leaves the post office in a rush. Seeing the frantic look on his face and the large amount of cash he withdrew, police approach him. It turns out the man recently returned to Taiwan from China and is supposed to be quarantining at home.

Mr. Chen: “I've already (spent) NT$100,000 on this trip home. 

Police Officer: “Where did you come back from?”

Mr. Chen: “Shanghai. Is that right? OK. ”

Police Officer: “I told you I didn't have a choice. I really didn't. I'm telling you. When we enter, it's all documented.”

The 30-something Mr. Chen completed his 10-day stay at a quarantine hotel after getting back to Taiwan. This was supposed to be followed by four days of home quarantine. He snuck out of his house late on the evening of the 25th to get cash, thinking he could get away with it. Unfortunately for Chen, he ran into police and now faces a heavy fine.

Chang Chung, Deputy Chief, Chunan Precinct: “In accordance with regulations, the police officer reported the man to the health authorities and then made sure he went home. We ask people that are supposed to be in quarantine to follow disease prevention regulations.”

The police followed Chen all the way home to make sure he went home, keeping close enough to him to catch him if he tried to run but also maintaining a distance from him to avoid infection concerns. Violating home quarantine is punishable by fines of NT$100,000 to NT$1 million.

 

 

 

男子領完現金,正從郵局提款機離開,但神色慌張,還領了大筆現鈔,警方一度懷疑是詐騙車手,上前盤查發現,男子是從中國上海返台的居家檢疫對象,但還沒期滿就已經四處趴趴走。

陳姓男子說:「我回來一趟,已經(花)10萬了。」警方問從哪裡回來? 男子回答上海,並一再求情,但員警也表示「這真的沒辦法」、「我們輸入這裡,就都有資料了」。

警方追查發現,這名30歲的陳姓男子從上海回台,依規定在檢疫旅館住了10天,剩下最後4天的居家檢疫期。原本想在過年前夕,趁著夜深人靜到住家附近郵局領錢,25日晚間溜出門,卻碰上員警,雖然男子向員警求情,但還是得依法開罰。

竹南分局副分局長張中說明:「員警依照規定通報衛生單位,並確認該男子返回住處,在此呼籲目前疫情險峻,民眾務必遵守防疫相關規定。」

警方表示目前男子的健康良好,但為了防疫還是保持距離,且一路跟著就怕又落跑,也確定沒有和其他人接觸。但違反居家檢疫是事實,將移請衛生局依法裁罰,可處10萬到100萬元的罰鍰。
