FORT WORTH, Texas -- An airline employee and eight workers for the federal airport-screening agency have been arrested on charges related to the theft and resale of airport parking passes at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
Airport police said Friday that 129 employee parking passes were stolen in March from the Fort Worth, Texas, headquarters of American Eagle airlines.
Police say some passes were sold for $100 each to employees of the Transportation Security Administration, who used them to park in airport employee lots. TSA workers normally have to pay $400 a year to park in those lots.
One TSA worker faces felony theft charges, accused of reselling the passes. The other TSA workers and the American Eagle employee face misdemeanor theft charges.
