Nine people have been arrested after an investigation into stolen DFW Airport employee parking passes.
Eight of the people arrested were TSA employees and the other person worked for American Eagle.
Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport officials said in a release an investigation was triggered when 129 employee parking placards were stolen from an American Eagle office in Terminal B in March.
The stolen placards were being sold to TSA employees for $100 apiece. TSA workers have to pay $400 annually to park at DFW Airport.
One TSA employee was arrested on a felony charge of theft of service for selling some of the parking passes to his TSA co-workers.
The American Eagle worker was arrested and charged with one count Class A misdemeanor theft for originally stealing the parking passes. A second TSA employee was arrested on a Class A misdemeanor theft charge, also.
The other six TSA employees arrested face a Class B misdemeanor theft of service charge for improperly obtaining the parking passes.
DFW Airport Department of Public Safety officers made the arrests and declined to name any of the people facing charges.
