TAMPA, Florida (AP) - U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson wants to know how a homeless woman was able to sneak into MacDill Air Force Base four times.


The Tampa Bay Times first reported the incidents. A spokesman for Nelson says the senator has asked the Air Force for an explanation and a briefing on base security.

Suzanne Jensen told officials she sneaked onto the base by turning a garbage can upside down and climbing a wall. Records show she stayed on the base for days at a time.

Jensen was cited by MacDill officials and charged with four trespassing counts and possession of a stolen military ID.

She also pleaded guilty in August 2012 after trespassing at Fort Myer in Virginia and was charged with two federal trespass counts in North Carolina in 2007.
