SFO trespasser back at airport again
March 27, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Marilyn Hartman

The San Francisco woman banned from San Francisco International Airport for trying to sneak on Hawaii-bound planes multiple times was arrested again Wednesday when she turned up at baggage claim.

Airport police arrested Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, around 4 p.m. in Terminal Three baggage claim with the same luggage as she always brings, said Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt.

There is no sign she tried to board any plane this time, Rosenblatt said.

She was arrested on charges of violating a court order and trespassing — the same charges on which she was arraigned exactly one week prior before being scheduled for an Aug. 4 jury trial and released on her own recognizance.

Hartman is prohibited from SFO unless she is legally ticketed to fly.

Wednesday’s arrest marks her third in the past month after three times trying to board planes — and once succeeding — and two violating her prohibition. She received time served for two misdemeanor burglary charges and the airport ban for trying to board flights on Feb. 15, 18 and 20. The first time she got onboard but was discovered when the actual ticket holder arrived at the seat. The next two times, including once when she used a discarded boarding pass, she was stopped at the security gate. After her arrest following the third attempt to sneak through security, Hartman reportedly told authorities she has cancer and wanted to go somewhere warm.

On March 18, a Transportation Security Administration manager recognized Hartman in a food court beyond the security checkpoint and she acknowledged who she was and that she wasn’t supposed to be there.

She also reportedly had her probation paperwork in her purse but no boarding pass in her name or adequate funds to purchase a ticket, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
