PITTSBURGH (AP) — Dozens of Transportation Security Administration workers at the Pittsburgh International Airport have been suspended or reprimanded after they were caught taking part in workplace sports gambling.

WPXI-TV reports that after a months-long investigation 47 workers were suspended and 10 letters of reprimand were sent out.

A TSA spokeswoman said dismissal has been proposed for five workers, and the suspensions range from three to 14 days. The agency said there’s no evidence anyone was deserting their security duties. The betting involved March Madness games, the Steelers, and dollar-a-square type wagers.

The TSA said it has taken the appropriate steps to discipline those involved.
