A total of 21 Transportation Security Administration officers at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport have now been arrested following the investigation into stolen employee parking passes.

The probe started several months ago with an undercover investigation by the airport’s Department of Public Safety. The last arrests were made over this past weekend.

Investigators found an American Eagle worker had stolen 129 parking passes for employee parking lots and recruited TSA officers to sell the passes to co-workers for $100 apiece.

The American Eagle employee has been fired, and at least eight of the 21 TSA agents have been suspended indefinitely without pay.

TSA officers at DFW Airport — even part-time — are required to pay $102 every quarter to park in two employee parking lots. The stolen airline parking passes allegedly sold for $100 allowed employees to park for one year.
