An ABC investigation has found what you might have suspected all along; if you leave your iPad with airport security, a TSA agent might just keep it for himself. The investigators went to 10 airports and put iPads through the screening machines in the little plastic containers, and then didn’t claim them just to see what would happen. Nine out of ten iPads were immediately returned to their owner, but as you’ll see in the video below, one TSA dirtbag walked away with the iPad. ABC filmed the theft and traced the iPad to the home of the crook. Read the full story at Gizmodo.
