A former TSA agent who was fired for stealing more than $800,000 in items from passenger’s bags at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey told ABC News that thievery was common in the agency during his employment.

Pythias Brown says that a culture of indifference lead to a widespread culture of stealing everything in sight. Brown is speaking for the first time after being released from prison for stealing on the job. His four-year stealing spree came to an end when he tried to sell a camera he stole from the luggage of a CNN producer on E-bay. He forgot to take off the network’s identifying tags and markers.

“It became so easy, I got complacent,” Brown admitted to ABC News.

He says that he learned to read the X-Ray scanners to determine which items were best to steal. Brown says even the TSA locks sold for luggage could not deter him because he and his colleagues eventually learned how to pick them.

During the time of his arrest, the ex-TSA agent was selling some 80 cameras, video games and computers on eBay.
