Posted: Updated:

Twenty-two people have been arrested after an investigation into stolen DFW Airport employee parking passes.

Twenty-one of the people arrested were TSA employees and the other person worked for American Eagle.

DFW Airport had previously announced nine arrests in this case. An additional 13 arrests were announced on Tuesday.

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 19 TSA employees arrested face a Class B misdemeanor theft of service charge for improperly obtaining the parking passes.
