New York police say that a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agent stole $5,000 from a passenger as he was going through security at a New York City airport.
Police and the TSA say that Alexandra Schmid took the cash from a passenger’s jacket as it went along an X-ray conveyor belt at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Police spokesman Al Della Fave says that surveillance video showed that Schmid wrapped the money in a plastic glove and taking it to a bathroom.
He says that the money has not yet been recovered. Police are investigating whether Schmid gave it to another person in the bathroom.
Schmid was arrested on a charge of grand larceny.
