Woman asked to leave Toronto airport after sleeping over for a month

Police say they had to ask a woman to pick up her suitcase and leave Toronto’s Pearson International Airport after staff reported they’d seen her sleeping there for about a month.

TORONTO — Police say they had to ask a woman to pick up her suitcase and leave Toronto’s Pearson International Airport after staff reported they’d seen her sleeping there for about a month.

The woman was given bus fare and left without incident today after police confronted her and asked if she had a flight to catch.

Staff say they’d seen her sleeping with a suitcase at the airport’s new terminal going back as far as Easter.

Police believed she had somewhere to go and that she didn’t appear to have any mental issues.

A spokeswoman for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority says it’s rare but not unheard of to get reports of people sleeping in the airport for extended periods of time.

And because the airport never closes, it’s not unusual for people to be seen walking around — or catching a quick nap — overnight.
