USA, Los Angeles: Oakland airport security officer accused of helping smuggle drugs.

According to an indictment unsealed Thursday, Kiana Scott Clark, a transportation security officer, worked with co-conspirators to smuggle "100 kilograms and more of marijuana" over more than two years. She is being charged with four counts of conspiracy: Two for obstructing Transportation Security Administration functions and two for conspiracy to distribute marijuana.

Earlier this year three Southwest Airlines baggage handlers were among 14 people charged with bypassing security at Oakland International Airport in order to smuggle several hundred pounds of marijuana across the country.  The baggage handlers would bring backpacks and duffel bags containing marijuana into restricted areas of the airport, according to the U.S. attorney's office in San Francisco. Using security badges, they'd enter the airport terminal and hand off the drugs to a ticketed passenger who had already passed through airport security, according to a sworn affidavit filed by federal investigators.
