Man in airport security breach ordered held
LOS ANGELES -- A man who allegedly breached airport security and boarded a cross-country Virgin America flight has been ordered to remain in federal custody in Los Angeles.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael Wilner said Friday he was hesitant to grant bond to Oluwaseun Noibi based on the circumstances of the case.
Another hearing will be held at a later date regarding whether the man might be released on bond.
Investigators say the 24-year-old boarded a flight in New York last Friday using an expired boarding pass with someone else's name on it. The crew didn't realize an extra passenger was onboard until mid-flight.
After arriving in Los Angeles and spending several days in the city, Noibi was arrested while allegedly trying to board a Delta flight with another expired pass.
