A man who spent parts of 12 days in secure sections of Eppley Airfield in Omaha pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to entering the areas under false pretenses.
Timothy J. Foster, 21, of Omaha used fraudulent identification badges to make it appear as though he were an airline employee, the FBI alleged in a criminal complaint.
He is accused of telling a United Airlines gate agent in March that he was a United employee in Portland, Ore. Foster asked the employee if he could watch her to learn of gate operations in Omaha and said their bosses had approved it, according to the complaint.
He spent two shifts a week for six weeks with the gate agent.
Foster is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 26 in U.S. District Court in Omaha. He faces up to six months in jail.
