How to Become a Bounty Hunter



DEA Violated Policy by Offering to Pay TSA Screener to Help Seize Cash from Luggage

tsaBy Steve Neavling

The DEA recruited a TSA security screener to help seize cash from passengers’ luggage, according to a Department of Justice watchdog.

The DOJ’s Office of Inspector General officially condemned the DEA this month, saying the agreement, which allowed the agency to confiscate money, “violated DEA policy,” Huffington Post reports. 

The arrangement “could have violated individuals’ protection against unreasonable searches and seizures if it led to a subsequent DEA enforcement action.”

The idea was to pay a TSA agent to tip off the DEA about cash in travelers’ luggage.

State and federal agencies have relied on civil forfeiture to seize hundreds of millions of dollars in property each year.
