A new report from ABC News ranks Orlando International Airport as Number 11 in theft by the TSA (Transportation Security Administration). The airport had 11 TSA agents fired for theft from 2002–2011.

In ABC's investigations, an iPad that went missing from the airport’s security checkpoint was tracked to an Orlando TSA agent’s home.

John Mica, U.S. Republican Representative from Winter Park, has been trying to get the airport to use private contractors for screenings instead of the TSA. The Orlando-Sanford International Airport has already done so, moving in June to a private company operating under federal supervision.

The report showed the Miami International Airport as Number 1 for TSA thefts. They had 29 employees fired as a result of theft from 2002-2011.
