Security breach at O'Hare

CHICAGO — Uniforms belonging to U.S. Transportation Security Administration officers were left out in the open at an O'Hare Airport checkpoint last month, as were sensitive security information and a cashbox.

While the TSA said the items were in the area past security checkpoints and that no security was breached, an aviation security expert said it's a "serious" situation because uniforms could be stolen and used by people trying to get through security without being checked. Unsecured items were found at six O'Hare checkpoints.
