Logan, who is jailed on a separate parole violation in a drunken driving case, isn’t considered a suspect in the teens’ murders, according to the Carroll County sheriff, who wouldn’t say what investigators were looking for in Logan’s home.

Authorities have received thousands of tips in the case and questioned hundreds of people, but so far no arrests have been made in the brutal murders of the two teens.

The reward fund in the case has reached $230,000.

Alexander Shae Johnson, 22, was arrested Thursday night.

Passenger Kathleen Duddleston entered the TSA checkpoint and was stopped for additional screening, police said.

While she was patted down, Duddleston told TSA security officer Michelle Metz that she couldn’t see her luggage, so Metz moved her closer.

Duddleston complained again that she couldn’t see her bag, and Johnson moved slightly.

After the pat down, Duddleston reached for her bag and could not find her money, police said. She said she noticed a bulge in Johnson’s left front shirt pocket. Duddleston asked Johnson if that was her money, and he said he got the money from the bank, police said.

The woman complained to Metz that she believed Johnson stole money from her. Metz contacted her supervisor.

Duddleston has been charged with third-degree grand theft.

TSA said in a statement to WFTV:

TSA has a zero tolerance for misconduct in the workplace.

The TSA immediately reported the allegation to OPD and we aggressively investigated the incident with our law enforcement partner. TSA officers represent a professional and honorable workforce that is trained to treat passengers and their personal belongings with care and respect. No exceptions will be tolerated. We immediately ended the federal career of this individual.
