A Transportation Security Administration agent surrendered to authorities on Tuesday and was charged with
stealing almost $500 from a wheelchair-bound woman passing through a
security checkpoint at Newark Liberty International Airport.
The TSA has suspended agent Leroy Ray, 44 of Newark, adding yet another incident to a growing list of troubling cases involving agency workers.
TSA surveillance cameras caught Ray taking money from a woman’s purse after the bag passed through an X-ray machine Feb. 3, according
to court documents. Ray allegedly took the bag to another table to
search it and removed an envelope containing $300 and then $195 in cash
from inside a zipper pocket.
Small thieves obviously stupid ones caught, bigger smarter white collars ones who game the Federal Contracts have been rewarded.
