Eleven unidentified passengers were able to go through an unmanned TSA checkpoint unchecked. TSA failed to report this incident to law enforcement for two hours after it occurred. Law enforcement are still searching for the passengers.
Eleven unidentified passengers walked through a security lane without being screened at Kennedy Airport early Monday because the TSA left the area open and unattended, law enforcement sources said.
A security camera captured a metal detector going off three times as the travelers walked through the screening lane, the sources said.
There was no one present to operate the magnetometer, the x-ray machine and do the pat downs and secondary screening, the sources said.
