A homeless man slipped through a vehicle checkpoint and
was later found sleeping on a plane at Lambert-St. Louis International
Airport. Police are investigating how the man slipped through the
checkpoint about 5:30 a.m. before he was found sleeping on an empty
regional jet about 6:40 a.m.
Vehicle checkpoint is not is not staffed by
Transportation Security Administration officers. The airfield perimeter
security is the responsibility of the airport's contracted security.
Police said the homeless man apparently had no
sinister motives; he wanted to get out of the rain. [more]
