A $30,000 watch that was reportedly stolen last week by two Transportation Security agents at Abilene Regional Airport was recovered Monday by its owner, Aviation Director Don Green said.

It was reported that a woman accused the agents of stealing the watch after she was unable to locate it in her baggage after landing at the airport. Green said the woman later found the watch had been misplaced in her check-in baggage.

He said accusations of employee theft occur rarely at the airport, and administrators reviewed video footage to see if a theft had taken place.

“It ended up being a happy ending,” Green said.
