Clayton Keith Dovel, 36, is the latest Transportation Security Administration baggage inspector arrested for theft. Dovel was found with stolen iPads from luggage of passengers snatched at the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport.
Police found eight stolen iPads, including one that was found with Dovel’s possessions at the airport. The iPads are valued at $20,000. I am astonished that anyone would think that they could get away with such a pattern of criminality.
What is most interesting is that one of the travelers located his stolen iPad through an electronic tracer and showed its location as a Bedford house owned by Dovel.
The case seems pretty airtight. A plea is the obvious course, though it does not seem that the defense has much to negotiate with in terms of a deal.
