Man charged with jumping fence, walking onto MSP runway

A 25-year-old man is charged with six misdemeanors for climbing a barbed wire fence and walking onto the runway at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport last week, during one of the busiest travel days leading up to the holiday weekend.

Airport security cameras show Roel Adame Blanco squeezing between secured gates, climbing the fence and breaching the restricted area around 11 p.m. on Dec. 21, according to charges filed Tuesday in Hennepin County District Court.

Blanco, of Minneapolis, was arrested and remains in custody. At his first court appearance Wednesday, a judge set his bail at $1,000 and ordered that Blanco stay away from the airport unless he has a plane ticket, according to court records.
