  • Judge Orders'Serial Stowaway Held on $25K Bond

The 66-year-old "serial stowaway" was caught yet again after sneaking through security at Chicago's O'Hare Airport last week without a ticket or passport - but not before she made it all the way to London. In a hearing Saturday afternoon, a judge ordered her released on her own recognizance, but ordered her to undergo psychological treatment and stay away from O'Hare and any British Airways planes.

She was denied entry to the United Kingdom and sent back to O'Hare, where Chicago Police took her into custody on Thursday. She's accused of lawful offense robbery and a wrongdoing check of criminal trespassing.

According to CBS sources, CCTV cameras captured Hartman, of Hamelitz Court in Grayslake, U.S., as she wandered around the airport for two days without being confronted by security. In a court filing after her arrest in July 2015 at O'Hare on trespass charges, Cook County prosecutors described Hartman as a "serial stowaway".

Once on the London-bound plane, she hid in a bathroom before snagging an empty seat, CBS Chicago reported.

She was busted for the stunt at least eight times in 2014.

Officials discovered what had happened when the woman was unable to produce a passport at Heathrow Airport.

The Transportation Security Administration is investigating how Hartman was able to get through security, a spokesman said in a statement Friday.

In a statement, the TSA said they are 'working closely with our law enforcement and airline partners in that effort'. In 2015, she was arrested twice in two months at O'Hare and Chicago's Midway Airport, and she's also been nabbed in California and Arizona.

She has said that homelessness drove her to take "desperate measures" and that she feels safer in airports than in the streets.
