A TSA agent is accused of stealing at Dane County Regional Airport.
The Dane County Sheriff’s Office tells 27 News the agent, Kathy S. Prisk, was cited for theft. A Sheriff’s Office spokesperson did not know the items taken, but says the property taken had an estimated value of $47.
Dane County Regional Airport spokesman, Brent McHenry, referred questions to a TSA representative. In a statement, the TSA tells 27 News is “does not tolerate theft and is moving immediately to terminate this individual.”
And while details on this incident in Houston have yet to be determined, we certainly understand why the passenger would immediately suspect that a TSA worker is responsible for the theft. Aside from being the agency having the ability to open locked bags, TSA has earned itself a reputation for criminal activity.
Additional details will be posted as they become available
