A TSA screener is accused of swiping a passenger’s watch and then smashing in a panic, the New York Post reports.  [2]

Margo Lauree-Grant, 41, was arrested last week on allegations of stealing the $7,500 Diamond Master watch from a Canadian man on Aug. 26.

The traveler realized he forgot the watch during the screening process.

When TSA officials began reviewing video, Lauree-Grant “smashed the watch into pieces. She destroyed it,” a law enforcement official said.

She was charged with grand larceny, possession of stolen property and official misconduct.
