Surveillance video caught TSA agents at Miami International Airport stealing from passengers as they went through security.
The shocking footage shows Labarrius Williams, 33, and Josue Gonzalez, 20, working together to steal money from passengers’ bags at security checkpoint E on June 29.
Video provided by the Miami-Dade County State Attorney’s office shows Williams shifting around items in a bin and then walking away while Gonzalez puts his hand on the item.
Gonzalez is then seen gripping something in his hand while removing it from the bin, then immediately dropping something in his pocket before returning to the conveyor belt.
Another clip shows Gonzalez starting to unzip a purse as the bin works its way down the belt.

Immediately after he puts his hand in his pocket
He starts by opening the larger main pocket, then the smaller front pocket when he pulls out a wallet and drags it to the corner of the bin behind a larger bag.
As the bin moves along, he opens the wallet and fingers through the cash that hangs out of it. While the bin goes down the line, he continually comes back to it.
His hands are in the bin touching the bag up until it must go into the x-ray machine. Then he puts his hands into his pockets and walks back to the end of the line.
On July 6, Williams, Gonzalez and a third TSA agent Elizabeth Fuster were arrested for allegedly removing $600 from a passenger’s wallet while they were going through security.
The arrest affidavits say Gonzalez and Fuster waived their rights at the time of arrest and provided written confessions. Williams refused to talk.

The theft took place at one of the country’s busiest airports, Miami International Airport
However, at a later hearing charges against Fuster were dropped according to NBC Miami.
They also report that Gonzalez was accepted into a state program that, if completed, the charges against him will be dropped.
He has been ordered to pay $700 to the two victims, do 25 hours of community service and give up his airport security credentials.
Williams was denied entry into the same program and will head to trial.
