TSA agent pleads guilty to drug sales

Posted: Updated:

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A federal airport security agent from western New York has pleaded guilty to selling drugs.

The Erie County District Attorney's Office says 29-year-old Todd Stoddard worked for the Transportation Security Administration at the Buffalo airport but was selling cocaine on the side.

He resigned from the TSA after his arrest in June for selling coke outside a town of Tonawanda bar.

The Cheektowaga resident pleaded guilty in state Supreme Court Thursday to selling and possessing drugs. He faces up to 18 years in prison when he's sentenced in October.

Authorities say the drug sales didn't impact security at Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

    Original state troopers' graves get new markers

    A gravestone has been dedicated at the previously unmarked burial plot of one of New York's original state troopers. Retired state police Sgt. Kevin Kailbourne of Wellsville has been leading an effort to mark the graves of every state trooper, including the originals. They were known as "campmen" because they were trained at a National Guard camp outside Syracuse after the law enforcement agency was created in 1917.
