Woman Arrested After Climbing Fence at Roanoke Airport

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — Officials say a woman was arrested after climbing a fence and walking up to a terminal ramp at the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport.

Airport spokesman Brad Boettcher says the woman scaled an outer fence and approached a ramp area near the terminal before she was spotted by ground crews and arrested without incident. The woman was unarmed.

Trespassing charges are pending.

Officials did not release the woman’s name or give a possible motive Sunday.
