PALM BAY -- A Homeland Security employee at Orlando International Airport is in the Brevard County Detention Center on numerous drug trafficking and gun charges.
Timothy Monroe, 41, was arrested Wednesday at his Palm Bay home on Coral Reef Road.
According to the Palm Bay Police Department, a three month investigation led them to Monroe.
Monroe was caught with 40 grams of cocaine, 65 grams of marijuana bagged for sale, a shotgun, two pistols, close to 100 rounds of ammunition and more than $6,000 in cash.
He's being held without bond.
Police are calling Monroe a mid-level drug dealer, and now the real work begins to try and find out who his suppliers are.
Monroe is a security officer for the Transportation Security Administration based at OIA.
The TSA told News 13 they are aware of the situation and said, "TSA takes the allegations very seriously. TSA has initiated an investigation into the facts of this case. We will take appropriate action to address this situation."
