TETERBORO, NJ -- A woman was arrested after breaching security at Teterboro Airport Tuesday morning.

According to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the breach "was the result of a woman in an unauthorized vehicle tailgating an authorized vehicle through a security gate before the guard could stop the unauthorized vehicle. The airport guard immediately notified Port Authority Police and operational staff of the incident, and a pursuit began in partnership with emergency service units and other agencies.

There were no planes on the runways at the time her vehicle crossed the airstrips, said a spokesperson. Charges are pending against the 32-year-old suspect, who abandoned the vehicle and fled the airport on foot, before being apprehended in the town of Moonachie.
