TSA Screener Finds, Turns In $5,000

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, N.J. -- Officials are praising a Transportation Security Administration screener who turned in $5,000 cash that he found on the floor at Newark Liberty International Airport.

John Deschamp was in Terminal C when he spotted something out of the ordinary on Dec. 27.

Officials say no security cameras were focused on the area.

The money was turned over to United Airlines because it was found near the United Elite Access check-in desk. A United spokeswoman says it will likely go to a charity if no one claims it.

The screener says he was just doing his job.
