CBS NEW YORK Reports, The woman accused of climbing into a lion enclosure at the Bronx Zoo has turned herself into the NYPD.
Police sources tell CBS2 Myah Autry surrendered to authorities Wednesday night. She has now been charged with two counts of criminal trespass.

The arrest comes less than a week after Autry appeared in a New Jersey courtroom to answer charges in a different incident.
New Jersey police accused her of stealing from a store in Kearny. She pleaded not guilty to shoplifting on Oct. 31.
