Cal­i­for­nian woman flies with­out ticket

SP's MAI - - INTERNAL SECURITY BREACHES -

ACalifornian woman re­port­edly trav­elled on a South­west Air­lines flight from San Jose to Los An­ge­les with­out a ticket, ac­cord­ing to the fed­eral law en­force­ment of­fi­cials. Ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports, it was the San Jose air­port’s sec­ond se­cu­rity breach in re­cent months, after a teenage So­mali im­mi­grant stowed away in the wheel well of an April flight from there to Hawaii.

The wor­man, Mar­i­lyn Jean Hart­man, sneaked past a se­cu­rity agent at Mineta San Jose In­ter­na­tional Air­port along with a fam­ily. Shewent through the elec­tronic screen­ing process be­fore en­ter­ing an air­port ter­mi­nal. Au­thor­i­ties say she made it through screen­ing be­cause she had no pro­hib­ited items on her or in her purse.

Hart­man, 62, then man­aged to board South­west Air­lines Flight 3785 to Los An­ge­les In­ter­na­tional Air­port and was dis­cov­ered once the plane landed. The San Francisco woman was or­dered to 24 months’ pro­ba­tion after she pleaded no contest.
