Do You Check Your Bags When Flying?

submitted on August 17, 2010 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
If so, you may want to not carry any valuables in those bags.

A security supervisor at Sea-Tac International Airport has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $20,000 worth of items from checked luggage.

Randy Pepper, a 50-year-old Spanaway resident, pleaded guilty Monday to federal charges related to the string of thefts, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office at Seattle.

Hired by the Transportation Security Administration in 2007, Pepper was fired in July 2009 after the thefts were discovered. In pleading guilty, Pepper, a supervisory transportation security officer, admitted to taken money and jewelry from luggage he was inspecting at Sea-Tac.

    crooks are everywhere... it won't stop me from checking my bags.. I'd be more concerned about the pilot... drunk pilots in the cockpit..that's not a good combination... Big Grin

    Wow, terrible.

    A friend of mine puts his dirty laundry/underwear on top in his luggage to deter thieves like this. Mr Green
