Marilyn Hartman, The "Serial Stowaway", Has Been Arrested For The SIXTH Time At O'Hare For Trying To Sneak On Flights

CHICAGO — “Serial stowaway” Marilyn Hartman has been taken into custody at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport after she allegedly escaped an electronic monitoring residential facility on Tuesday.

Police said Hartman left the facility she was staying at while on an electronic monitoring program at around noon. Staff attempted to call her and investigators found that her device indicated she was traveling in the direction of O’Hare.

Hartman was spotted on the non-secure side of the airport Tuesday. She had not made it past TSA security checkpoints and was arrested by Chicago police just before 2:15 p.m.

Hartman has been arrested multiple times at O’Hare, Midway and airports across the country for trying to bypass airport security. Her latest arrest came in October 2019.

She's done it again. We are living in the an era with the most travel restrictions in history. It was easier to get into New York through Ellis Island 100 years ago than it is today in our post-9/11 current covid-19 world. Don't tell that to Marilyn, the world's worst stowaway who just can't get enough. It's "Catch Me If You Can" except she gets caught like every time. I blogged about her in Oct 2019, the last time she was arrested for this same crime

By my count this is the 21st time she's done this since 2014. She got sent to jail where she was fucking STABBED by an inmate who had a "mental episdoe". You'd think she'd be scared straight, but NOPE. Ankle bracelet be damned. She's getting on that plane. She's pouring a cocktail in the Delta lounge. She's spitting in TSA's eyeball as she goes through security. She's addicted. 

At this point though...just let her do it. Honestly, there aren't any planes that are full. The only way to get her to stop is to take away the rush. Award her TSA pre-check. Give her a frequent flyer number. Roll out the red carpet every time she gets on I-190. Take away the thrill of being the world's baddest grandma and I bet she just gives up this lifestyle. Maybe she turns to something easier like getting over the border.
