Another trespassing charge has been leveled against a “serial stowaway” who was arrested again at O’Hare International Airport while wearing a GPS ankle monitor.

Marilyn Hartman, 69, faces a new misdemeanor for criminal trespassing, according to Chicago police spokeswoman Karie James.

When Hartman was arrested Tuesday, she was wearing a GPS ankle bracelet while on house arrest for another trespassing charge, the Cook County sheriff’s office said Tuesday.

Police found her near Terminal 1 after activating an alarm on the ankle bracelet, the sheriff’s office said.

Hartman has a long history of arrests after allegedly sneaking past security and boarding planes at O’Hare, Midway and other airports across the country.

The sheriff’s office, which on Tuesday said it would seek a felony escape charge, couldn’t immediately confirm if the charge was approved.

A spokesperson for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
