JFK TSA agent arrested for stealing $61 out of passenger's wallet during screening

The TSA will fire Joe Bangay after security footage showed him emptying a passenger's wallet of its cash during screening.

Joe Bangay, 37, of Queens, N.Y., was working as a screening agent when he stole $61 from a passenger's wallet, Joe Pentangelo, a spokesman for the Port Authority police, said. The passenger had placed his wallet in a bin at the main screening point at JFK airport, and he noticed that the cash was missing when he retrieved his wallet, Pentangelo said.
