Bush Intercontinental Airport security breach: 22-year-old woman charged after trespassing on runway at IAH, police say

A woman is charged after police say she breached a security fence around Bush Airport and made it onto a runway Tuesday night.

Airport officials said 22-year-old Ivori H. Howard was spotted at about 8:30 p.m. near runway 15L – causing it to shut down immediately.

Dispatchers described the events to the Houston Police Department as the woman walked around a secured area at the airport.

“Security breach, I guess, I’m not really sure. It says female on the runway in a brown tank top, blue jeans. Runway RW 15R,” the dispatcher said.

About 15 minutes later, Howard was reportedly taken into custody, and the runway was back open.
