Convicted TSA agent who stole more than $800K worth of goods from passenger

Convicted TSA agent who stole more than $800K worth of goods from passengers says stealing from bags is ‘very’ common

A former TSA agent who spent three years in prison for stealing from passengers' luggage says the practice is “commonplace.”

 

Pythias Brown admits to stealing more than $800,000 worth of cash, clothing and electronics over a four-year period at Newark Liberty International Airport. He was finally caught trying to sell a stolen CNN camera on eBay.

 

"It became so easy, I got complacent," Brown told ABC News.

 

Though Brown says he might have been one of the biggest thieves at the Transportation Security Administration, he believes the agency has a culture of entitlement — and of looking the other way.

 

“It was so easy. One day I walked out of there with the video game, the Nintendo Wii. I walked right out of the checkpoint with the Nintendo Wii in my hand,” he said.

 

TSA agents on the take justify their actions, he explained.

 

“They aren’t paying me, they’re treating me wrong. They’re doing this and they’re doing that. And they just don’t care,” he said of some of his former colleagues.

Maybe it's only common for you, Pythias Brown. I hope he gets a heavier sentence than this. He even tried to sell a CNN camera in eBay. Now he needs punishment, for his own good.

That's nice, bitching about your job and trying to use that as an excuse to steal. It's amazing how they will try to justify their actions.

So tired of people complaining about jobs they decided to take. Oh I don't get this. I have to deal with that. Well get another job! Friggin' loser. Three years for stealing close to 800k worth of cash, clothing and electronics... He should be beaten like he stole something (which he did) and then some.

Well, not for nothing, but when you have a job with piss poor pay, you get piss poor people.

lol... Still a lame excuse.... If he wanted more money he could take on another job or get a new full time job altogether. Would be a lot easier quite frankly. Are they allowed to go through your things when unloading them? It seems like that's what he was doing. What they should do is have surveillance in that area. In all of my years of flying, I've been fortunate so far not to have anything stolen or lost.

I simply don't fly. No need to, nor do I have any desire to. I'm not going to put myself up for scrutiny by these morons.

You would likely be collared for that. The TSA is a rogue organization that was borne out of incompetence and thrives on it.

The TSA is the biggest example of security theater that I have ever seen. It's a multi-trillion dollar excuse to give morons jobs. Additional bureaucracy to expand the reach of government.

And this is why I hate Newark Airport. Incompetent TSA agents, crappy terminals (though C is a bit nice), stereotypical Jerseyans, and a just awful AirTrain.

 

JFK all the way.

Incompetent TSA agents? They're all over, never mind EWR. And these idiots are supposed to be the first line of defense in airports? God help us.

Blaming one doesn't do justice and doesn't solve anything. At least he recognize his fault like several other TSA Agents caught doing the same act. In fact a lot do it under the radar but yet to be caught and believe me, this is not limited to TSA Agents, also local police and other "enforcement" agencies around the nation and beyond.

They're ESPECIALLY bad at EWR. There was just a study the other day that showed they don't always follow procedures properly, which doesn't surprise me at all. Good luck to that airport, I'll see y'all at JFK.

And this is one of the many reasons we don't NEED the f---ing TSA.

Remember, the TSA are our lords. We must bow before our masters while they exclaim( while hitting their chest) "I HAVE POWER, I HAVE POWER!!!".

 

 

Is this the imagery you're invoking?

Looking at how this jackass stole $800K in goods from passengers and hearing that other TSA agents are doing the same thing regularly tells me why I have been seeing an enormous amount of passengers taking Amtrak and Greyhound recently.

That and on Amtrak or Greyhound, you don't need to be anally probed.

 

Keep your dignity & keep your stuff, it's a win-win.
