A TSA agent was in 2012 convicted of stealing goods worth more than $800,000 from travelers. He said this was a common theft among airport security. Pythias Brown worked at Newark Liberty International as a Transportation Security Administration officer before his arrest. He had spent four years stealing laptops, clothes, Nintendo Wiis, cameras, video games and cash from luggage and security checkpoints.
After a 3 years imprisonment, Brown spoke publicly about the theft. He located valuable items to steal with the help of X-ray scanners. He worked alone most of the time screening luggage behind ticket counters and the overhead surveillance cameras that had been installed to prevent theft were not working.
Brown claimed that most officers are prompted to steal due to the low pay they get and bad treatment. The TSA managers also never check the employee’s bags as they leave. This shows how extensive airport theft is and the problems passenger’s face when they travel with valuables.
