Missing iPad tracked to home of TSA agent

An ABC News investigation team tracked an iPad from a security checkpoint to the home of a TSA agent. During the investigation, which sought to determine what was happening to items that were disappearing from airport checkpoints, ten iPads were left at airport security locations, and nine were returned according to agency guidelines. But in one case, Apple’s free iPad tracking software led investigators to the home of TSA officer Andy Ramirez.

In a statement to ABC News, the TSA said it has “a zero-tolerance policy for theft and terminates any employee who is determined to have stolen from a passenger.” The TSA reports that 381 of its officers have been fired for theft between 2003 and 2012.
