Baltimore-Washington International (BWI) Thurgood Marshall Airport, Maryland

Two charged for stealing 28 rental cars at BWI Airport

A man and woman had been arrested on Monday and charged with stealing no less than 28 rental cars from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport, Maryland for six weeks last year.

Maryland Transportation Authority Police, with the help of members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, arrested Shakierra D. Scott, 26, and Travis J. Scott, 31, both of whom are charged with multiple counts of car theft and running a theft scheme.

Transportation Authority Police, which has jurisdiction at the Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, in Linthicum, stated they carried out a lengthy investigation into the thefts from the BWI rental car facility located in Hanover between May and July 2019. The vehicles had a combined value of over $660,000.

Police stated Shakierra Scott used her position as a security officer with Allied Universal Security Services, a company contracted by rental car companies at BWI, to permit Travis Scott to drive the rental cars from the secure facility without a contract. They then sold the rental cars, according to police.

Shakierra Scott was arrested in July by the MDTA Police Special Operations Division and charged with stealing a vehicle. Prosecutors opted not to take those charges to trial in September.

Both are being held without bail in the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on Jennifer Road. Both don’t have an attorney listed for them in court records.

The Baltimore Police Department and the Anne Arundel County State’s Attorney’s Office were involved in the investigation as well.
