A 62-year-old woman dubbed the “serial stowaway” for her numerous efforts to fly without a ticket was arrested Tuesday in another incident, this time in Phoenix.

Marilyn Hartman was taken into custody about 11:30 a.m. at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport for trespassing, according to a news release from Phoenix police.

On Aug. 20, Hartman was caught trying to enter a secure area of Sky Harbor without a ticket, police said. She was given a warning and escorted off the premises. She was arrested Tuesday after she ignored that warning, police said.

Hartman was sentenced to 177 days in a Los Angeles jail earlier this month for violating her probation after she was banned from Los Angeles International Airport because she stowed away on a Southwest flight from San Jose.
