It's always disappointing when things like this happen, and unfortunately I believe it can happen out of any airport.

I would highly advise that you contact Sanford Airport to report it. If the monetary value of goods taken is significant you could claim on your travel insurance also.

However I appreciate it's probably less about the money and more about the violation. Thank you for the reminder regarding security of the cases- I'll be flying into and out of Sanford in less than a fortnight and will remember to be much more careful when packing hand luggage versus hold luggage.

i suppose, if the candles had been scanned and there was cause for concern, these would of been cut in half or drilled rendering them useless anyway, security and safety comes first. In regards to the hat, could be any reason its not there.

Your first point of call would be with your travel insurance to make a claim. The items removed will more than likely been disposed of now.

whilst there is clearly something amiss here, why would someone risk their job/police/possible prison for some candles and a hat ?

Never had anything go missing at Sanford, but did have our suitcases broken at Miami, despite having TSA approved locks on. I always put my candles in my hand luggage though.

If the candle stuff was stolen then why would TSA put a note into your case?

As another poster said, something in the make up of these items may have set off alarms or the explosives dog. The TSA will then remove such items... end of.

The hat may have been in contact with the candles and would therefore get pulled too.

Unfortunately in these days of high security alert these thins can happen.

Above is an alternative view. If someone wanted to just steal the stuff, then why leave a note, and why not just take the whole case?
It seems unusual too that it was the stuff the OP had just bought.
