Multiple airport screeners have been arrested for allegedly taking handsome bribes to look the other way while loads of illegal drugs slipped through security at Los Angeles International Airport, federal officials announced today.

Two current and two former officials at the Transportation Security Administration were arrested in the last 48 hours in connection with at least five incidents from February 2011 to July 2011 in which on duty screeners took payments of up to $2,400 to allow suitcases filled with drugs to pass unimpeded through X-ray machines at LAX, U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr.'s office said in a statement.

Well at least they weren't stealing passengers' private property. Hopefully these TSA agents will receive a pat down from their cellmate.

Only $2400.00? Those drug traffickers could have afforded more - I would have held out for at least $10,000.00.

Meh, what's a few stolen iPads, felt up little girls, and a TSA agent flashing his mall cop badge to get some unsolicited sex among friends?

More like prison trustees. Walmart cashiers don't sexually molest children and elderly.
