A 39-year-old man suspected of trespassing at Mineta San Jose International Airport this morning was arrested, a police spokeswoman said. Miguel Zaragoza allegedly breached onto the Atlantic Aviation ramp around 10:15 a.m., Sgt. Heather Randol said. He encountered employees who escorted him to a lobby to await police, she said. Zaragoza then allegedly fled from the employees, stole a city maintenance truck from a parking lot and drove along the curb through Terminal B, according to Randol.
Airport staff and police were able to apprehend Zaragoza without incident and he never made it to the runway area, she said. He will be booked into Santa Clara County Jail on suspicion of possession of a stolen vehicle and trespassing, Randol said. No one was injured in the incident and no further details were immediately available.
