In the spirit of providing outstanding customer service and unparalleled security a Transportation Security Administration agent at John F. Kennedy International Airport stole $5,000 in cash from a Bangladeshi passenger’s jacket. Alexandra Schmid took the money as it went along an X-ray conveyor belt Wednesday night at Terminal 4 of the New York Airport.

The 31-year-old Brooklyn resident has been arrested on charges of grand larceny. She has worked for the TSA for over four years. The money has yet to be recovered however, a surveillance video shows Schmid removing the money from the jacket pocket, hiding it in a plastic glove and then taking it to a nearby bathroom. Police suspect she may have given the money to someone else involved.

TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein comments on the theft:

“We do hold our officers to very high standards, and we have a zero tolerance policy for theft in the workplace”
