On July 29, after showing her driver's license to the gate guards, a woman made her way onto Ft. Carson in Colorado and wound up in a Special Forces recruiting office. When she started asking questions about the 10th Special Forces Group, headquartered there, it raised concerns and military police were called in, according to a spokeswoman for the base.

The woman's name was Suzanne Jensen. When MPs checked her background, they learned Jensen was facing charges in Florida after authorities said she sneaked onto MacDill Air Force Base four times over a three-month period. So they called El Paso County (Colo.) sheriff’s deputies, who arrested her on outstanding warrants. Jensen was then shipped back to Tampa.

Jensen didn’t violate any rules by being on the base, according to spokeswoman Dani Johnson.

"You don’t need a military ID to get on base," she said. "But that policy is changing."

The change, she said, has nothing to do with Jensen.

Jensen trespassed onto MacDill, home of U.S. Special Operations Command and U.S. Central Command, between Oct. 1 and Jan. 4, according to federal court records. She told base security that she twice scaled fences, one time using an overturned garbage can as a ladder.
