While statistically thefts are an isolated problem at airport security, it does serve as a warning to passengers to be careful with where they leave their belongings.
Protecting baggage is a top priority for any passenger as they fly from airport to airport.
Many say despite all the increased security, it hasn't stopped items from coming up missing.
You can't always keep your eyes on your bags.
They go through security checkpoints, often they're opened and searched, and sometimes things are even stolen.
We spoke with people waiting at baggage claim, many who say they're cautious when it comes to packing and checking bags.
“Very seldom anymore do we have a problem with people rifling through your baggage,” Danny Brown said. “That’s a very isolated incident and they have most of that under control in the United States.”
Paula Breitenbach says, “I don't leave anything in my bag like cameras or Ipads or anything like that.”
Some of the passengers we talked to, know first hand what its like to open up a suitcase and find things missing.
So now many of them carry-on anything valuable and suggest others do the same.
They’re not pointing the finger at TSA, but still choose caution.
Our local TSA department was unavailable to speak with us about the issue.
