It comes after a similar instance yesterday, with a man arriving at the Gold Coast Airport before police screening him and finding he was wanted on warrants in New South Wales.
He then fled the airport, allegedly broke into a home in Kirra to steal clothes and then fled to the beach where he was later arrested.
