Interesting story, that. When I've been selected for screening at the gate, there's usually been a table where my carry-on luggage is to be sorted through while another agent is running a wand over me, having me turn around, take off shoes, etc. The times when my bag would be out of my view, I've simply asked to have them stop searching it until the personal search was completed.

My request is usually met with suspicion initially, to which I reply, "it's to avoid temptation," and never had any further problems.

Cheers.  Smile

Actually, the issue concerning locked bags had to deal with passenger complaints to the airlines about bags that had non-TSA sanctioned locks that were cut to allow the agents to inspect the bag or bags that did not make a flight due to non-TSA sanctioned locks that couldn't be opened and inspected in time to make the cutoff for the flight. There are baggage locks out there that are designed to comply with TSA regulations, mainly that the TSA has master keys that can open the lock quickly and without damaging it. Any good luggage shop should have them. As mentioned previously, locks and security are there to keep the honest folks honest.

It all depends on what medication the pills were. There is a large black market here for certain prescription drugs due to the affects that they can produce on the body. Also, many prescriptions contain refined ingredients that can be used in the manufacture of illegal drugs. Criminals steal the drugs of choice since purchases of large amounts of certain materials are recorded or prohibited by retailers. This way they minimize the risk of being reported to authorities, caught and prosecuted. The basic reasons are drug addiction and/or greed.

But they were pain-killers, I hardly think a Distalgesic or a co-codamol, available at any chemist is worth stealing or that you are going to 'trip on them

OxyContin is a painkiller... in some parts of the country people will just about kill to get it... I doubt the screener stole pills you can get without a prescription. What was taken was likely powerful prescription medication (Valium, Lortab, etc)

Perhaps these were a prescription pain killer containing Codine. Some people after an painful injury, an operation, tooth extraction, very bad back pain, will by given by their doctor a prescription pain reliever of Tylenol with Codine. Such a product could easliy be sold off to a 'friend' for some quick bucks, or perhaps the agent here had a drug problem themselves.

Vicodin and Tylenol with Codeine are in the top ten most-prescribed meds in the USA. Both are very addicting and people will go to extremes to get them. While in nursing school, there was a report that someone went so far as to go to university for four years in order to become a nurse. She figured it would be like a kid in a candy store. Little did she know that every pill is counted and recounted at least three times a day.
