    So-called serial stowaway Marilyn Hartman was taken back into custody Friday evening after making yet another appearance at O’Hare Airport, police confirmed Saturday.

    According to Chicago police, officials received a call from TSA agents Friday regarding the 67-year-old woman who is known to them as an habitual stowaway.

    Authorities said she was seen "moving dividers in an attempt to circumvent security," and was taken into custody without incident.

    Hartman was charged with one felony count of criminal trespass to registered area/airport, officials said in a statement.

    Hartman has long struggled with homelessness and mental health, and has had multiple encounters with officials at airports throughout the U.S.

    In 2016, Hartman was ordered to be held in jail without bond after she walked away multiple times from a Chicago mental health facility where she was receiving treatment.

    She is set to appear at bond court at 9 a.m. on Sunday.
