"A TSA agent at Bush Intercontinental Airport was arrested on Thursday amid accusations of theft.
The TSA had been conducting an internal affairs investigation for a while and said the female employee is accused of theft. The employee, who's name hasn't been released, began working for the agency in September 2002.
In a statement issued to Eyewitness News, the Department of Homeland Security said:
"TSA holds its workforce to the highest professional standards and we act swiftly to end the federal careers of those who do not abide by these standards. The actions of this officer in no way reflect on the nearly 50,000 Transportation Security Officers who work tirelessly to protect the traveling public."
No other details were immediately available."
