A TSA officer based at Palm Beach, Fla. International Airport pleaded guilty Monday to taking bribes to let drugs pass through airport security.

Christopher Allen, 46, of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.,  pleaded guilty Monday before U.S. District Judge Mark R. Kravitz in New Have, Conn.   to taking payments from a drug trafficker to let large amounts of the prescription drug oxycodone pass through airport security. The drugs were destined for Connecticut for illegal sale.

“This defendant received cash payments to violate his oath of public office and look the other way as large quantities of oxycodone pills passed unlawfully through airport security,” said U.S. Attorney David B. Fein  in a statement. “For obvious reasons, we cannot tolerate corruption within the ranks of those who are entrusted with the responsibility for screening air travelers and their baggage. I commend the DEA Task Force for shutting down a pipeline of highly addictive prescription pills from Florida to Connecticut, and for bringing to justice this federal employee and others who participated in this illegal scheme.”
