OPERATIONS AND YEAGER POLICE APPREHEND SUBJECT ON AIRFIELD

On Wednesday morning at approximately 6 AM, Operations Specialist Jennifer Fisher noticed a subject on the airfield during her routine patrol. Following CRW protocol, Fisher challenged the subject who could not produce an airport badge. Realizing the subject was not an airport employee, Fisher immediately notified Yeager Airport Police Department.

Once the subject spotted the police officers, the subject attempted to flee but was apprehended by Yeager Airport Police.

The subject was transported to the hospital for evaluation.

CRW is thankful and proud of the response by Airport Operations and Yeager Airport Police, executing their training to ensure a safe and successful end to the incident. CRW would also like to thank the Charleston Police Department for its assistance.

Yeager Airport Police, Operations, and Charleston Police Department continue to investigate.

There is no threat to the public.
