A security screener at Denver International Airport is in a lot of hot water and facing charges of felony theft.

41 year-old Steve McCumber was charged for stealing 700 dollars from a purse belonging to passenger Marivel Sotelo.

Sotelo was flying home to California when she discovered she was missing 7 one-hundred dollar bills while she was at a concourse restaurant.

She and her 2 children and mother missed their flight while authorities searched for the missing money.

It was found 2 hours later in an x-ray machine after an anonymous tip-off.

The screener was fired and faces up to 6 years in prison.
