JFK security swiping valuables

From Eyewitness News:

In the last three years, four TSA checkpoint screeners have been fired for theft while only one has been fired at Newark, and 1 at LaGuardia.

Last July, two Kennedy Airport screeners got caught red-handed swiping a cell phone and laptop from luggage during a TSA integrity sting.

The TSA says: "Overhead surveillance cameras and close supervision help deter theft at checkpoints" and " that it moves swiftly to end the federal careers of any employee caught stealing."

The Port Authority says there have been 51 cases of theft at TSA check points at JFK in the last two years.

Police sources say the number is probably much higher, especially since many times, the thefts are never reported.

You get what you pay for.

The only thing that is funnier than your juvenile jealousy is the fact that you think $3,000 is expensive for a watch.
