    This is an odd report. Does anyone else know anything about this?
    I checked my list and didn't see anything like it but that doesn't mean it isn't old since it could predate 2010 when I started compiling this stuff.

    It doesn't show up on the WAFB non-mobile site or in a Google search.

    Anyway here is the full text.

    Maybe they got busted as they were thieving overtime for the Super Bowl crowd?

    These are from 2004 era. The appeal for Gregory Carmen was denied in 2009, here is a copy of his appeal decision here:

    It appears (based on the testimony and conviction) that Carmen took a laptop from the checkpoint and was caught on video. There is no mention of conspiracy or involvement in any other case, so maybe he was a stand alone caught at the same time? Whatever the case, I am glad they are all gone.

    In this digital age, this is the only followup info I could find without using a pay site. There was a completely unrelated case that was "not considered" by the Louisian Supreme Court that included a Herbert Zeno, but it was in 1999 and completely unrelated.

    Good to know that the recent spate of thefts by TSA lackwits isn't exactly a new trend.
