“I don’t feel like I did anything wrong,” maintains Toussain Puddie, the 32-year-old former TSA screener who took home Rick Case’s pen and now faces grand-theft charges at the behest of Case and his family.
Basically the incident rolls like this. TSA agent see’s pen. TSA agent likes pen. TSA agent now want’s pen and confiscates it. TSA agent then takes pen home as his own personal property.
What kind of pen in question would he want to steal? One of these. The exact pen in question is valued at $450 dollars.
In this case he’s being held accountable, but only because the owner who’s property was stolen is wanting to press charges. The bottom line is the TSA is nothing more than thieves and pilferers who prey upon those just trying to get from point a to b.

Because if you see something you want and you work for the TSA, just confiscate it and take it home.
