A former Transportation Security Administration supervisor at Charlotte Douglas International Airport was arrested Thursday morning, after allegations he stole from the airport’s lost and found.
TSA officials said Wednesday that Angel Caban, 33, was fired after the theft accusations surfaced.
On Thursday, public records show Caban was arrested and charged with one count of misdemeanor larceny. He was being held in Mecklenburg County’s jail under $500 secured bond.
According to two airport officials familiar with the case, Caban was accused of stealing electronic items from the lost and found.
Caban does not appear to have any criminal history in North Carolina, according to public records.
TSA Administrator John Pistole has made stopping theft one of his priorities, implementing harsher penalties and conducting random sting operations to test employees by leaving valuables at checkpoints.
