In a bait-and-hook situation setup by ABC News, they were able to track a stolen iPad back to the home of a TSA officer. The production team set out ten iPads in airports that are known to have thefts taken place…nine were reported to the lost in found, the other was not.
But in Orlando, the iPad was not immediately returned and two hours later its tracking application showed the device as it moved away from the airport to the home of the TSA officer.
After waiting 15 days, ABC News went to the home and asked Ramirez to return the iPad.
It gets worse: the employee then blamed the situation on his wife:
Ramirez produced the iPad only after ABC News activated an audio alarm feature, and turned it over after taking off his TSA uniform shirt.
His explanation for the missing iPad in his home was that his wife had taken it from the airport.
