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 Dovelâ€™s home thanks to â€œtechnology on the iPadsâ€, so presumably one of the owners used Find My iPad to track down their device, although the report doesnâ€™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.
