TSA Officer Planted “Cocaine” on Passengers

American Scofflaw

For ordinary, law-abiding citizens, trying to get through airport security can be stressful even under the best of circumstances. The airport is hardly the proper venue for a practical joke.

Case in point: A “fun loving” security officer with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the Philadelphia International Airport pretended to find a bag of cocaine in at least two passengers’ bags.

It was a prank that he, but not the travelers, thought was “funny.” One of the passengers freaked out, with good reason, and reported the incident.

This occurred last January, but further details just became public this week under the Freedom of Information Act.

The Philadelphia Inquirer explains:

The TSA officer was supposed to be checking equipment instead of passengers, the documents said, and the white substance he had with him was creatine powder, not cocaine.

The Smoking Gun, which obtained the documents, says the screener was a bomb appraisal officer of all things and may have been pranking “unsuspecting targets” because he was bored.
