A Transportation Security Administration screener from Brooklyn has been arrested on charges he swiped iPads and other electronic devices from passengers' luggage at John F. Kennedy Airport.

Port Authority spokesman Steven Coleman said Wednesday that 32-year-old Sean Henry was nabbed in a sting operation using decoy bags in cooperation with the TSA.

Coleman says Henry was arrested after leaving work carrying in his backpack two planted iPads and other electronic devices. He says stolen items were also found in Henry's home.

The 10-year veteran of the federal agency was arrested on charges of grand larceny and official misconduct. Information on his lawyer was not immediately available.
