Serial stowaway 'Marilyn Hartman' arrested at Chicago airport

Serial stowaway 'Marilyn Hartman' arrested at Chicago airport

A woman notorious for stowing away on commercial airplanes made it past two TSA agents at O'Hare Airport by hiding her face with her hair, then stayed overnight at the airport before sneaking onto a plane and flying to London this week, prosecutors said Saturday.

Hartman for years has stowed away on flights or tried to board flights for which she has no ticket or boarding pass.

Chicago Police representative Anthony Guglielmi says Marilyn Hartman was flown back to Chicago on Thursday night and arrested once she arrived.

Hartman was charged with one misdemeanor count of criminal trespass to land and one felony count of theft or unauthorized control greater than $500 but less than $10,000, police said. In a court filing after her arrest in July 2015 at O'Hare on trespass charges, Cook County prosecutors described Hartman as a "serial stowaway".

Hartman apparently hid in a bathroom onboard the flight, before finding an empty seat. She was then sent back to O'Hare and arrested by United States law enforcement officials. The pesky passenger was sent back to the USA when she couldn't produce a passport and was arrested Thursday upon arrival at O'Hare.

The Transportation Security Administration is investigating how Hartman was able to get through security, a spokesman said in a statement Friday.

Her first infraction ended with probation, followed by 364 days in jail.

The 66-year-old Hartman has endeavored a few times to load up planes without a ticket. In 2015, she was arrested twice in two months at O'Hare and Chicago's Midway Airport, and she's also been nabbed in California and Arizona.

Airline personnel realized she did not belong on the flight and didn't have a passport.

According to CBS, Hartman has said that she likes being at airports because they make her feel safe.
