A TSA manager at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport was arrested by US Customs and Border Protection on an outstanding warrant from Florida.
Maxine McManaman is the Assistant Federal Security Director for the TSA in Atlanta. She was arrested on Dec. 28 after arriving on a flight at Hartsfield Airport and charged with felony forgery related to the alleged “exploitation of a family member with dementia,” Florida officials said Thursday.
Authorities say McManaman allegedly falsified a quitclaim deed, a document that transfers property from one person to another, CBS 7 reported.
McManaman (pictured) is accused of preparing a quitclaim deed listing herself and another suspect, her father, Delroy Chambers, as the beneficiaries.
The Florida property belonged to McManaman’s mother, who has dementia. However, her mother was not available to sign the deed.
St. Lucie police said it “was determined that the grantor could not have signed the document on the date specified, since the grantor” was determined to be in Atlanta that day.
“TSA holds its employees to the highest professional and ethical standards and has no tolerance for misconduct on or off duty,” a TSA spokesperson said in a statement to FOX 5 Atlanta.
The spokesperson added that McManaman was placed on leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
McManaman is being held without bond in the Clayton County Jail in Jonesboro, Georgia, while awaiting extradition to St. Lucie County, Florida, according to St. Lucie police.
Her father, Delroy Chambers, 80, was taken into custody in Port St. Lucie on Dec. 20, 2023. He was charged with two counts of exploitation of an elderly or disabled adult ($50,000 or more), two counts of forgery and simple neglect of an elderly or disabled adult.
He has since bonded out of jail, police said.
