TSA Inspector at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport Charged With Stealing 8 iPads
NBCDFW reports today on the arrest of a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inspector who has been accused of stealing eight iPads from checked luggage over an eight-month period at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. The baggage inspector, Clayton Keith Dovel, has been charged with theft by a public servant, and has been suspended by the TSA.
According to the report, the haul of iPads was traced to Dovel’s home thanks to “technology on the iPads”, so presumably one of the owners used Find My iPad to track down their device, although the report doesn’t elaborate on this. One of the owners of the stolen iPads said that he has learned his lesson and will always be taking valuable items in the cabin with him in his carry-on luggage from now on.
"The unacceptable behavior of this individual in no way reflects the dedication of our nearly 50,000 transportation security officers who work tirelessly to keep our skies safe," the TSA said via a statement.
