Unauthorized cargo at Mather
From David Richie:
Security personnel at Mather Airport made a surprise discovery Monday night -- a homeless man sound asleep inside a cargo plane.
A sheriff's summary released today does not indicate how long the 44-year-old man had been sleeping or how he gained entry into the area off Truemper Way. Deputies were called about 11:40 p.m. after United Parcel Service security guards found him. The security guards then checked the plane and "found it to be clear of suspicious items," the summary states.
The man was issued a citation and deputies gave him a ride to a nearby light-rail station, where he was released from custody."
Kinda funny. Why would a homeless man want to sleep in a plane?
Maybe UPS should pull the 72's out of the desert and donate them to homeless shelters.
