Default TSA Arrested On Drug Charges

Taxpayer's money at its best:
By The Associated Press

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.

Tom Carson, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office, said more than a dozen people were arrested. He would not disclose names.

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