It’s surprisingly easy to steal a TSA tray

This is a story about a man who broke a tray out of TSA captivity.

While heading to Chicago, Imgurian IOG55 of course had to go through security. But after he put his shoes back on, he had an idea to goad the TSA agents and see how far he could take the tray.

And well, he ended up on the plane with it. 

Turns out the plane’s pilot was also amused at the grand getaway and wanted a picture with the tray. 

IOG55 got all the way home with his tray…

…and even uses it for some practical decor.

Maybe the TSA was too busy with their Instagram account to notice this guy walking away with their stuff? Either way, solid heist.
