Airport Crimes in South Florida
Since 9/11, security at airports throughout the United States has increased dramatically. As a result, no tolerance policies have replaced common sense during investigations into any security breach or criminal offense that occurs at the airport.
The most common offenses include carrying a concealed weapon or firearm through a security checkpoint, drug smuggling, drug possession, marijuana possession, theft, disorderly conduct, and driving under the influence (DUI) on airport property.
Types of Criminal Offenses at the Airport
The most commonly prosecuted offenses at the airport include:
- Carrying a concealed firearm or dangerous weapon

- Possession of controlled substances
- Drug smuggling
- Shoplifting and theft
- Disorderly conduct
- Driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) on airport property
Although most crimes are prosecuted in state court, some of these crimes are prosecuted in federal court. Federal law prohibits interfering with a TSA official under 49 U.S.C. § 46503 and 49 C.F.R. § 1540.109 and entering a secure area without submitting to screening under 49 C.F.R. § 1540.107.
