UPDATE: The TSA issued a statement saying the car was not searched by their agents or under their authority.
While we deploy numerous layers of security, TSA officers are not inspecting cars or mandating that they be searched. In this case, it turns out the car was searched by an employee of a car parking service. Each airport authority, along with its state and local law enforcement partners, is responsible for securing airport property, including the outer perimeter. At this particular airport, car searches are part of their “airport security plan.”
Travelers might be accustomed to seeing a little slip or sticker on their checked baggage that states it has been inspected by the TSA, but a New York woman was surprised to find a similar notice inside her vehicle that she had valet parked at the airport.
