Three Harris County criminal courthouse security officers have been charged after personal items and even cash disappeared from people going through security.

Sharmichael Easter is the latest arrest in these unrelated cases. She's charged with stealing a hair styling tool.

Mary Armstrong is charged with tampering with a government document. Harris County Precinct One deputy constables say she changed a property log when $1,000 in cash disappeared, and Priscilla Lewis is accused of stealing an iPad.

All worked for Weiser Security, the company that has the security contract at the county courthouses. They issued the following statement:

"Weiser Security Services, Inc. ('Weiser') is committed to protecting the life and property of our clients and their patrons. To that end, Weiser immediately terminated the officers involved in the theft, and we have taken proactive measures to prevent any such future losses.

Furthermore, Weiser is committed to hiring and employing only the most dependable and reliable security officers in the business.
