The supervisor, Jeremy Hemingway, was in charge of about 100 other TSA employees. Apparently his salary of $44,931 to $69,617 a year wasn’t enough to deter him from such petty theft (and, of course, we have no idea how many other things he may have stolen before he was caught).
No charges, however, have been lodged against him:
Police did not charge Hemingway with petit larceny or any other crime because the owner of the luggage was unknown, so they had no identified victim, Sgt. Tom Connellan said.
Yeah, sure, that makes sense.
Oh, and get this: he was “either fired or resigned.” No one seems to know which, least of all the TSA.
Anyway, as we’ve pointed out so many times, if someone can take something out of your suitcase, they can also put something in. It’s only a matter of time.
