Timothy worked at the Naples Airport in Southwest Florida when he took $18,700 in cash in 17 separate incidents.

"Evidence collected during the investigation showed that Timothy was surreptitiously stealing cash from arriving international passengers during border enforcement examinations and currency verifications performed as part of his official duties as an assigned CBP Officer at Naples Airport," Department of Justice officials said in a news release

As per his plea agreement with prosecutors, Timothy has been ordered to pay full restitution to the passengers he's accused of stealing from and agreed to resign, effective immediately. 

He faces up to 10 years in prison. A sentencing date has not been scheduled.
