A man has been caught at a bar in Darwin after breaking out of quarantine at Howard Springs.
NT police say the 27-year-old was seen scaling the fence of the quarantine camp, south of Darwin, before he was picked up by a white ute on Friday night.
He was later caught at a licensed venue on Mitchell St, Darwin, about midnight.
Police took the man back to Howard Springs, where he was tested for COVID-19 and returned a negative result.
Officers are now probing the incident, including tracking down the people who were involving in picking the man up outside the camp.
