TSA Worker Allegedly Manipulated Body Scanner So Colleague Could Grope Men's Genitals (Video)

| by Brendan Kelly

Shocking footage has been released showing a female Transportation Security Administration (TSA) worker rigging an airport security scanning machine to help her male co-worker fondle male passengers' genitals.

Ty Spicha, 27, who worked at Denver International Airport, reportedly alerted his coworker Yasmeen Shafi, 22, every time a man he found attractive walked up to the security checkpoint, according to a law enforcement report obtained by CBS4. Then, Shafi would manipulate the body scanner so that the man would be identified by female and his genitals would cause the scanner to detect an anomaly, which would permit Spicha to perform a pat-down on the unsuspecting man.

New footage captured by airport security cameras shows Spicha patting-down male passengers who Shafi has identified as female.

The sort of contact Spicha is making with the passengers, running his hands over their genitals and buttocks, is a violation of TSA policy.

Shafi stands by the security machine, watching Spicha grope the passengers.

Shafi and Spicha have both been fired from the TSA, which deemed their actions "egregious and intolerable." 

No alleged victims have been confirmed yet by officials, so no criminal charges have been filed against Shafi and Spicha, although Shafi has admitted to participating in the plot.

According to her, the plot involved at least 11 passengers in 2014 and 2015. 

The TSA received an anonymous tip about the plot in November of last year, but didn't launch an investigation until February.
