A Transportation Security Administration (TSA) official was arrested last week on an outstanding warrant.

“TSA Assistant Federal Security Director Maxine McManaman was arrested in Atlanta by U.S. Customs and Border Protection,” Fox News reports.

The St. Lucie County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office had a warrant for her arrest for allegedly working with an accomplice, Delroy Chambers Sr., to exploit a relative with dementia by falsifying documents in their name.

Fox News reports:

The Florida authorities allege that the duo forged signatures on a quitclaim deed transferring ownership of a property in the relative’s name over to themselves.

The relative whose property was transferred to McManaman and Chambers allegedly could not have signed the quitclaim deed, because the individual was found to have been in Atlanta on the date listed, according to police.

Chambers was previously arrested on Dec. 20 in Port St. Lucie, charged with two counts of exploitation of an elderly or disabled adult, simple neglect and two counts of forgery. He eventually bonded out of jail.

McManaman is facing a third-degree felony charge of forgery.

She was reportedly apprehended after touching down in Atlanta on an international flight.

Per NBC News:

McManaman is currently detained at the Clayton County Jail in Georgia awaiting extradition to St. Lucie County. In a redacted probable cause statement, she told authorities during a recorded call that her brother has made these allegations multiple times.

TSA said it is aware of McManaman’s arrest “for a non-work related charge” and he is on leave pending further law enforcement action.

“TSA holds its employees to the highest professional and ethical standards and has no tolerance for misconduct on or off-duty. Any employee who fails to meet our fundamental ethical standards is held accountable,” a spokesperson said Friday.
