The Transportation Security Administration is raking in some pretty pennies.
TSA officials say agents collected more than $409,000 in loose change left by airline passengers last year.
John F. Kennedy International Airport netted the most amount of money with nearly $47,000 left behind.
TSA officials say says most of the money comes from people rushing through security or foreign travelers who don't want to take it home with them.
The money goes to the administration's financial office and can be spent on security operations.
