21 TSA Officers at Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) aiport were arrested today for stealing and reselling employee parking passes. These passes were going for about $100 on the black market. NBC News is reporting:
A total of 21 Transportation Security Administration officers at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and an American Eagle employee have now been arrested following an investigation into stolen employee parking passes.
The probe started in March with an undercover investigation by the airport’s Department of Public Safety after American Eagle reported that 129 parking passes had been stolen from its offices inside Terminal B.
Investigators say an American Eagle worker stole the placards and recruited TSA officers to sell the passes to co-workers for $100 apiece. The employee is charged with count of Class A misdemeanor theft, the airport said in a statement Tuesday.
The TSA officer accused of selling the parking passes was arrested on a felony charge of theft of service. Another TSA employee was arrested on a Class A misdemeanor charge of theft of service in connection with multiple violations, the airport said.
The remaining 19 TSA employees are accused of using the parking passes without properly obtaining them and are charged with Class B misdemeanor theft of service.
The last arrests were made over this past weekend.
Several airline employees were arrested as well.
At least they weren’t stealing from passengers this time!
