TSA Officers Arrested on Illegal Narcotic Transport

ABOLISH THE TSA. They work for a crooked government. The TSA is not making airport security safer. Airport passengers are more concern with TSA intrusive pat downs, scans, and theft than a terrorist or bomb in the plane.

(NY Post) STAMFORD, Conn. — Federal prosecutors in Connecticut say a state trooper, a police officer and three Transportation Security Administration officers based at airports have been arrested on charges of participating in a conspiracy to distribute tens of thousands of highly addictive painkiller pills.

Authorities say the TSA officers, based at airports in Florida and New York, a Westchester County, N.Y., police officer and a Florida state trooper received cash payments to help transport oxycodone pills from Florida to New York and Connecticut and/or transport cash proceeds from the sale of the drugs back to Florida.

Authorities plan to announce details of the arrests at a news conference in Stamford on Tuesday afternoon.
