Nothing But A Bloated Incompetent Bureaucracy that Doesn't Even Properly Screen Its Employees
A Transportation Security Administration employee was arrested Thursday after he was caught on video stealing cash from a bag going through screening at Orlando International Airport, Orlando police say.
Alexander Shae Johnson, 22, who had been with TSA just a few months, was arrested on a charge of third-degree felony grand theft, records show.
A passenger was going through security when she was selected for a pat-down search and saw Johnson was standing near her bag.
Afterward, she went through her bag to make sure her cash was still there, but it was missing.
She noticed a bulge coming from Johnson’s shirt pocket that turned out to be money, according to a report.
