23 MAY 2017: NEW YORK, NEW YORK

Phani Kumar Varanasi, 41, an Indian national, entered a sterile area of LaGuardia Airport after disembarking his flight. He claimed he had wandered into the area by mistake but was not challenged by the TSA agent seated behind a desk at the entrance. He walked around the area for around five minutes before exiting out of the same door, still unchallenged. Varanasi had left the airport by the time the breach was acknowledged, but he was identified by officers using flight records and CCTV footage, and subsequently arrested.
