TSA Uses Decoy Luggage To Bust Airline Laptop Thieves

This is why you don't check valuables people. A TSA officer and baggage handler working at JFK airport were recently busted stealing a MacBook Air and a T-Mobile Sidekick out of decoy luggage.

Both suspects were filmed by authorities rummaging through luggage bound for Miami on July 7th. They also switched luggage tags in a futile attempt to hide their crimes. The pair faces up to 4 years in prison if convicted—giving them plenty of time to swap stories with this guy. [Daily News via Gothamist via The Consumerist / Image via Flickr]
