    TSA agents watch closely over who and what gets through airport security checkpoints. But now, eight of those agents at DFW International Airport have been arrested.

    They were not arrested for stealing passengers belongings, but for dealing in stolen airport employee parking placards.

    TSA agents must pay money out of their own pockets to park at DFW Airport. And now one agent has been arrested on a felony charge of selling a placard to seven fellow agents, who are each charged with a misdemeanor.

    Cynthia Vega, a spokeswoman for the airport says, “They have to pay $34 a month or $400 a year for the employee parking placard So in essence, they bought, we believe these employees bought the placards for $100.”

    That would save the employees $300 a year.
    Carrie Harmon, a TSA spokeswoman, says all eight have been placed on indefinite suspension without pay.
