TSA Agents Arrested for Selling Stolen Airport Parking Passes (Video)
Two Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents have been arrested for allegedly selling stolen parking passes at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
According to authorities, an unidentified American Eagle worker stole 100 parking passes for employee parking lots and teamed up with TSA agents to sell the parking passes to other TSA workers for $100 each, notes NBC Dallas-Fort Worth (video below).
The parking passes are valuable because all TSA officers at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport have to pay $102 every three moths to park. The stolen parking passes are good for one year.
There could be 20 to 40 more arrests of TSA agents, say sources.
The TSA said last Friday that the agency is cooperating with the investigation and does not tolerate any form of unlawful behavior.
Likewise, American Eagle stated: "American Eagle has a zero-tolerance policy for this type of activity. We have worked closely with the DFW Airport Department of Public Safety to investigate this matter. The individual involved is no longer employed by American Eagle."
