Al Raimi, 29, of Woodridge, pleaded guilty Thursday to a charge of
theft by a government officer. Raimi worked as a lead officer at a
security checkpoint at the airport. Between October 2009 until
Sept. 8 2010, Raimi said he stole the cash from airline
passengers. Raimi then “kicked up” some of that money to his
immediate supervisor, Michael Arato. “In exchange, Arato allowed
Raimi to continue stealing,” said Asst. U.S. Attorney Erick
Kanefsky in a statement.
