TSA Screener Stole Up To $700 A Day From Passengers

A Newark Airport TSA security screening supervisor was arrested by federal authorities for stealing cash from passenger’s carry-on bags.

The arrest came after a five-week investigation. The supervisor was also accused of accepting kickbacks and bribes from a co-conspirator who also stole cash from passenger bags. The pair allegedly targeted non-English speaking travelers, particularly women coming from India.

If you suspect theft from your baggage, file a police report and a complaint with the TSA.
