Vernon Lythcott, a TSA screening supervisor, has been charged for allegedly flying to the Dominican Republic to have sex with girls under 18.
Lythcott was arrested last Friday while trying to board a plane at JFK Airport in New York City, reports Fox News.
According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Lythcott flew to the Dominican Republic to have sex with two 15-year-old girls in January.
The teen girls told the DHS that they went with Lythcott to a beach and had sex with him in the water for $80, reports The New York Post.
Photos of the teen girls were allegedly found on Lythcott's cellphone.
He was charged with having illicit sex with a minor in a foreign country.
Lythcott reportedly told authorities that he had traveled to the Dominican Republic “on numerous occasions’’ where a third party “obtained girls for him to have sex with on approximately 45 occasions,” but he claimed the girls were older than 18.
