How to Become a Bounty Hunter

The folks who protect our nation’s airports — the Transportation Security Administration — don’t need this kind of publicity.

The feds in Los Angeles on Friday indicted TSA officer Paul Yashou, 38, for stealing watches and a prepaid credit card worth $1,000 at Los Angeles International Airport.

The indictment alleges that Yashou stole four watches and the debit card from luggage going through security screening in Terminal 1 at LAX.

The indictment specifically alleges that Yashou stole an IWC GST chrono perpetual calendar moonphase watch valued at about $15,000, a Breitling Crosswind worth about $5,000, a $1,000 Antima watch and a $1,000 Movado watch.

Authorities said the probe began when the owner of the IWC watch saw his watch up for sale on eBay.
