Serial stowaway Marilyn Hartman, 66, flies from Chicago to Heathrow

23 January 2018

She originally tried to get onto another plane headed to CT, but after trying to "dart around" another passenger, was told to sit down by a flight agent.

Marilyn Hartmann, from Grayslake, was arrested Thursday at O'Hare after she managed to bypass the TSA and fly to the U.K. Upon her arrival in London, she was sent back to Chicago, as British Airways had by that point warned the U.K. authorities.

Reportedly, Hartman did so by hiding in the bathroom and then once the plane took off, she found herself a seat.

Hartman used her hair to hide her face and walk past two federal TSA Precheck agents who were checking boarding passes around 2 p.m. on January 14 at O'Hare, prosecutors said Saturday. She has also been busted in other airports in California and Arizona.

Somehow, she was able to get past security at O'Hare and then into the global terminal, where she boarded a British Airways flight to London.

Hartman also will be required to have an ankle monitor until the conclusion of her case.

Simonton said Hartman tried to dart past the passenger but was stopped by the gate agent, who told her to sit down. However, this is her first felony charge, Simonton said in the reported copy.

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

Hartman is then seen joining the security line and being screened by TSA.

Marilyn Hartman was eventually apprehended by customs officials, the Chicago Police Department said. An airport surveillance video showed Hartman going through O'Hare without a boarding pass or passport, an official stated in the same report.

Hartman spent a year behind bars for the repeated incidents, and was released on probation to a nursing home in December of 2015, Fox News reports.

How did she manage it this time? In 2016, she was sentenced in Chicago to six months of house arrest and placed on two years of mental health probation.

They're calling her the "Serial Stowaway". She's had four misdemeanor convictions related to O'Hare since 2015.
