US Customs And Border Protection Detains TSA Director In Florida

On December 28, U.S. Customs and Border Protection detained Maxine McManaman, the Assistant Federal Security Director for the TSA, in Atlanta, Georgia.

The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for McManaman’s arrest, alleging that she and an alleged accomplice, Delroy Chambers Sr., took advantage of a dementia-stricken relative by forging documents in their name, according to Port St. Lucie Police.

The pair allegedly forked signatures on a quitclaim deed giving them ownership of a property registered in their relative’s name, according to the Florida authorities.

Police argue that the relative whose property was transferred to McManaman and Chambers was in Atlanta on the specified day, so the relative was unable to sign the quitclaim document.

Before this, on December 20, Chambers was taken into custody in Port St. Lucie and charged with two counts of forgery, simple negligence, and exploitation of an adult who was aged or disabled. He ultimately got out of jail together.

McManaman is charged with forgery, a third-degree crime.

It has been stated that she was captured upon landing on an international flight in Atlanta.

According to local accounts, McManaman worked at the airport as a management-level employee of the TSA since November 2002.

“TSA holds its employees to the highest professional and ethical standards and has no tolerance for misconduct on or off duty,” a TSA spokesperson said in the statement to local outlet FOX 5 Atlanta.

“Any employee who fails to meet our fundamental ethical standards is held accountable,” the spokesman continued.

McManaman has been put on leave while the police conduct their investigation.

She is being detained at the Clayton County Jail in Jonesboro, Georgia, at the moment.
