ORLANDO, FL - An ABC News investigation tracked an iPad purposely left behind at a Florida airport checkpoint to the home of a TSA officer.
The entire investigation led ABC News to 10 airports total where there was a history of theft.
In Orlando, cameras showed that the last TSA officer holding the gadget at the checkpoint was named Andy Ramirez.
ABC News tracked the device down by using a locator app that also sets off an alarm.
They waited 15 days, and ABC investigator Brian Ross eventually went to the home of Ramirez, 30 miles away from the airport.
In the video report below, Ross met with Ramirez and showed him that the iPad locator indicated it was at his house.
Ramirez denied the allegations until the iPad alarm went off.
When the alarm sounded, Ramirez brought the iPad out of his house and claimed his wife took it home.
Ross then asked how that was possible because cameras showed Ramirez with the iPad last.
The TSA told ABC News that Ramirez no longer worked for them as of Wednesday.
At the nine other major airports in this investigation, they all reportedly followed TSA guidelines when items were left behind.
Owners were immediately contacted since a name and phone number were clearly displayed on the iPad case, the report said.
