A Charlotte woman told Eyewitness News she also had cash stolen from a TSA baggage inspector at Charlotte Douglas airport.
Reggie Edwards was arrested and charged with stealing cash out of a suitcase.
Edwards was arrested again Thursday after police said they linked him to stealing $150 from a woman's suitcase just weeks before.
"I was shocked," said victim Nancy Turner. "I have always traveled like this. Not to carry a lot on me, and just to put it deep inside my luggage and it's never been bothered and my luggage has been inspected a number of times."
Turner hasn't gotten her money back but she said CMPD told her she will.
