Salina Police Department (SPD) officers arrested a resident who stopped her vehicle on the runway at Salina Regional Airport on Thursday, April 18. 

At about 6:30 a.m., an Airport employee called SPD and reported a silver 2003 Ford F-150 truck stopped on the airstrip after following another employee through a gated area.

"[She] drove in behind it and ended up driving onto the runway," said SPD Capt. James Feldman. "So when officers made contact, they were on the runway."

Feldman said officers spoke with 42-year-old Salina resident Sindee Boumsombath and later arrested her for trespassing and driving with a revoked driver's license.

The incident report did not detail Boumsombath's reasons for entering the restricted areas of the Salina Regional Airport.
