Police review security after US runway scare

Police review security after US runway scare

Philadelphia police say they're looking for ways to make the city's airport more secure a day after a sport utility vehicle crashed through a fence and sped onto the runway.
The U.S. attorney says 24-year-old Chadds Ford resident Kenneth Mazik is being charged with disrupting operations at the airport and endangering safety there. Police say he crashed his Jeep through a fence and sped up and down two runways at the airport Thursday.
The airport says that it's secure and that its perimeter fencing meets federal standards.
But Chief Inspector Joe Sullivan says authorities will be conducting a thorough security review. He heads the Philadelphia police's homeland security and counterterrorism division.
Police will look at how they deploy personnel, whether additional technology could be used and whether structural improvements could be made.
