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.
The Port Authority said the incident is being investigated to determine how to best prevent a recurrence.
