TSA clerk sentenced for stealing

In a rare case of justice being meted out, one of the TSA’s many thieves has been sentenced to jail. ¬†

An Associated Press story identifies him as 55-year-old¬†Douglas DeWeese of Damascus, Maryland (a town between Baltimore and D.C.). DeWeese worked at Dulles International Airport, where he used to “inspect” checked luggage. You know what that means — the blue shirts get to paw through your luggage without your being present. Gee, no opportunity for theft there!

DeWeese pleaded guilty to theft of property in interstate commerce. He was sentenced to 10 months in prison.

Just think of all the TSA clerks who steal and don’t get caught. We only find out about the ones who do.
