BREAKING NEWS – Miami, Florida – Surveillance video caught TSA agents at Miami International Airport stealing from airline passengers as they sent luggage through security, prosecutors say.
Video evidence released by the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s office appears to show two TSA agents taking money from the passengers on June 29.
Josue Gonzalez, 20; Elizabeth Fuster, 22; and Labarrius Williams, 33, were arrested in July and initially charged with organized scheme to defraud, according to Miami-Dade county jail records. They were booked into Turner Guilford Knight Detention Center.
One of their attorneys actually blamed the TSA. “TSA employees work long hours, often six days a week,” the defense attorney began. “And because they don’t have much time off, it stands to reason that they do a lot of their shopping through random luggage. It is unfair to refer to them as thieves, rather than customers trying get items on sale, at 100% off.”
