Three Vegas Airport Techs Accused of Theft, Sabotage
Crime

LAS VEGAS -- Las Vegas authorities say three technicians at McCarran International Airport are accused of stealing electronic gear and sabotaging a security camera in a building where they worked.

An airport spokeswoman said Friday that 39-year-old Matthew Charniga and 34-year-old Joseph Cordova were fired as a result of the criminal investigation and resulting charges.

Their supervisor, 34-year-old Chad Norton, is on paid leave pending a resolution to the criminal case and an airport investigation.

Airport spokeswoman Elaine Sanchez said airport officials called in Metro police to help with the investigation.

She says security monitoring is handled by the Transportation Security Administration and a separate division within the airport -- not information technology employees.
