Feds accuse TSA supervisor of having sex with minors in Dominican Republic

A New York TSA screening supervisor is facing up to 30 years in prison after being accused of flying to the Dominican Republic to have sex with underage girls.

Vernon Lythcott, 48, was nabbed Friday trying to board a plane to the Caribbean country at New York’s JFK Airport.

A federal complaint sworn by an agent of the Department of Homeland Security charges the Brooklyn man with having sex with two 15-year-old girls on a trip last January.

The New York Post reports that the teens told investigators they went with Lythcott to a beach and had sex with him in the water. Lythcott gave the victims $80, court papers say.

After his arrest, investigators found photos of the victims on his cellphone.

Lythcott was arraigned on a charge of having illicit sex with a minor in a foreign country in the federal court in Brooklyn. He was released on $250,000 bond.
