Stowaway, 62, Arrested at LA Airport

Officials say a woman arrested six times trying to sneak onto flights at San Francisco International Airport managed to fly from another Bay Area airport to Los Angeles without a ticket.

Marilyn Jean Hartman was arrested late Monday at LAX after arriving from Mineta San Jose International Airport.

The San Jose Mercury News reported Tuesday ( http://bit.ly/1zSIMFE ) that the crew on the Southwest Airlines flight did a head count after landing that revealed an extra person on board. When the 62-year-old Hartman was unable to produce a boarding pass she was removed from the plane.

Southwest says it's working with authorities and conducting its own internal investigation into the incident.

Hartman faces misdemeanor trespassing charges.

The newspaper says Hartman was on probation after being arrested for attempting to board three separate Hawaii-bound flights departing SFO in February.
