Four current and former security screeners at Los Angeles international airport have been arrested and charged with drug-trafficking and bribery.
The four accepted cash to allow large shipments of cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana through X-ray machines, the US justice department said.
The charges allege 22 separate payments of up to $2,400 (£1,500) allowed drug-runners to bypass airport security.
A prosecutor said they “placed greed above the nation’s security needs”.
In that case they probably already have job offers from some major banks.
