Checking your bags at John F. Kennedy International Airport may be a risky proposition, a new report says. Valuables have been disappearing, and some are pointing their fingers at airport employees. The thefts have been occurring at an average rate of about ten an hour, or 200 per day, according to a recent CBS News expose. For its part, The Port Authority, which owns JFK, said that background checks are made through the FBI on all workers, who also get fingerprinted. Some security cameras exist at the airport, but experts say that more are needed to decrease the thefts.
