    Pilot Online: Ex-TSA screener charged with grand larceny (July 17 2012)

    A former federal security screener at Norfolk International Airport has been charged with grand larceny in an alleged theft from a passenger.
    John W. Irwin, 60, turned himself in to police July 5 and was granted bond, court records state. A grand jury indicted Irwin, of Virginia Beach, in the theft of more than $200 in property from a man on Nov. 16, 2011, records state. A trial date has not been set.
    Irwin screened passengers and bags for the Transportation Security Administration, said airport authority spokesman Wayne Shank. A passenger left cash in a tray while being patted down by a security agent, Shank said. The passenger forgot the money until he reached his plane, he said. When the man returned to the check point, the money was gone, Shank said.
    TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said the money was returned to the passenger. Irwin, a federal employee, worked for the agency between September 2002 and November 2011, she said.
