We have yet another Transportation Security Administration employee arrested for stealing at a security check point in an airport. Alexander Shae Johnson, 22, did not allegedly waste time in engaging in theft. He has only been with the TSA for a few months. Now he may be on his way to prison.
A woman noticed that cash was missing from her bag after going through screening at Orlando International Airport. She then noticed a bulge in the shirt pocket of Johnson’s shirt. He reportedly insisted that the money was his but a videotape was used to confirm the theft.
He was fired and is now facing trial.
Usually sentencing is enhanced or “aggravated” by the use of official positions or power for the commission of a crime.
