Suffolk prosecutors dismissed the misdemeanor charge of criminal trespass against Nancy Genovese because an investigation found that she was inside her car outside the fenced property and never left her vehicle at the time of her arrest on July 30.

Genovese signed an agreement stating she acknowledges “entry onto or into the 106th Rescue Wing property on County Road 31 in Westhampton Beach is forbidden” and that if she returned to the location, she would be re-arrested.

At the time of her arrest Genovese was found to have gunsin her trunk, which promted investigators to alert the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force as well as the Department of Homeland Security.

“The number one concern of the 106th Rescue Wing is of the safety of the community and of our members,” said Major Scott Williams, executive officer of the 106th Rescue Wing, whose members had repeatedly warned Genovese not to come back after she was caught photographing the base prior to her arrest.
