    ABC Local KTRK: TSA agent arrested on accusations of theft (June 17 2011)

    A TSA agent at Bush Intercontinental Airport has been arrested amid accusations of theft. Officers arrested Karla Morgan, 49, Thursday for theft. Police say an undercover officer gave Morgan a wallet he said he found with a thousand dollars inside. Investigators say Morgan put the wallet in her backpack and walked out of the airport. Officers then arrested Morgan in a parking lot.

    In a statement issued to Eyewitness News Thursday night, the Department of Homeland Security said: [usual meaningless bull:poop: deleted]

    The TSA had been conducting an internal affairs investigation for a while. Morgan began working for the agency in September 2002.

    I stumbled on this just now as I was Googling for info on a rumor that Houston airport had announced that people would arrested if they insulted TSA.

    I've asked the person who posted about the Houston airport announcement for a reply - if I get one I'll post it here.

    Ok, here is the response I received from the poster on Twitter regarding the announcement at the Houston airport that people would be arrested if they insulted TSA.

    @rudepundit did you actually hear this announcement?

    @klj47 @SaytheFourth Totally heard it. It might have been "offensive," but I remember "insulting." And, yes, arrest. No doubt.

    And I'm sure after much intense investigation the spokeholes will officially tell us all proper procedures were followed.:rolleyes:

    edit: oh and the smurf was going to drive all the way to wallet owner's home to personally hand over the wallet. THAT'S it. :rolleyes:x100

    I guess the Pedosmurfs got tired of passengers doing the "When Harry Met Sally" thing during a grope.
