    Let’s reserve judgment until all of the facts are known. Anyone can make an accusation.

    Why aren’t you talking to the airport PD? Should be any easy open records request….but wait that would take some effort…

    Here is a more complete story from the AP:
    Airport police in Minneapolis say a Delta Air Lines employee has been cited for misdemeanor theft for allegedly stealing a traveler’s iPhone.

    A woman told KSTP-TV she recently lost her phone at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. Her son used a GPS system to track the phone to a St. Paul home where the airline employee lives.

    Police tracked his airport badge and found he was working on the same night and in the same area where the phone was stolen. Officers say they found the phone in the employee’s home.

    Delta spokesman Paul Skrbec said Saturday the airline won’t comment while the investigation remains open. He adds that Delta is cooperating with authorities.

    Probably a TSA worker, who after copping a feel, stole the phone. I’m sure the thief told authorities they didnt realize it was in their possesion until they got home and had every intention on bringing it back to work to report it. You have to be just plain ignorant to steal an I-phone.
