    Undercover officers say they placed a bunch of valuables inside a bag and they passed it through Terminal B's "Checkpoint 20" as Morgan was working. Officers were carefully watching the bag the entire time, but she left things alone in those first few attempts. Police decided to try Plan B, so they took 10 marked $100 bills and folded them in a wallet. An officer handed the wallet over to Morgan and said he was turning it in because he had found it nearby in the terminal. In their police report, HPD officers write that Morgan did not turn that wallet into her supervisor as she's supposed to do. She even walked right past several uniformed HPD officers, passing up another opportunity to turn in the found property. At quitting time on Thursday, police say she left the secure area of the airport and headed for her car and that's where undercover officers approached her for the arrest.
