Ticket agent took bribe to put package on plane at Charlotte air

Less than a week after an incident authorities called a 'major' security breach at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport in November, a second breach occurred, security documents allege.

Boston CBS affiliate WBZ-TV has obtained the internal TSA document that says a JetBlue ticket agent at the Charlotte airport accepted a bribe to violate security procedures.

According to WBZ, the document said an undercover TSA agent walked up to the JetBlue counter November 19 and told the ticket agent there was a package he had to get to Boston that day.

The undercover agent, the document said, slipped the ticket agent $100 bill, and the ticket agent took the package, believing he was sending it to a plane bound for Boston.
