BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) – “I’m 95-years-old. She’s 85-years-old. What the heck is going on here? Do I look like a terrorist,” exclaimed Omer Petti when telling Action News about an upsetting encounter with TSA agents on his way back to Metro-Detroit.
With knee and hip replacements, Petti and his companion, Madge Woodward, expected to set off an alarm when going through security in San Diego before boarding their flight, but what they say they got was a hassle from TSA agents that resulted in $300 in cash being stolen from a bin.
Petti, a retired Air Force Major, says he has no idea if security or another passenger took his money that a TSA agent told him to place in a bin on the screening belt.
