A Transportation Security Administration agent has been arrested for allegedly stealing $400 dollars from a wheelchair bound passenger as she passed through a security checkpoint at Newark Airport.
Leroy Ray allegedly went into the disabled woman’s bag as it passed through the X-ray machine.
Ray was caught on surveillance video on February 3, 2010, reaching into the woman’s bag to steal an envelope of cash, according to a criminal complaint.
The fiftyish year old woman, investigators said, was from North Jersey and was flying out of Newark to visit relatives overseas.
