Californian woman flies without ticket
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.
