A TSA supervisor was arrested Friday and charged with having sex with minors.

Vernon Lythcott, 48, was arrested at JFK Airport and later arraigned on federal charges.

Prosecutors say he solicited sex from two 15-year-old girls in the Dominican Republic between late December and early January.

He allegedly paid the victims $80.

Lythcott is charged with engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor in a foreign place and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

He was released on $250,000 bond.

The TSA says it's in the process of terminating his employment.
