Baggage Handler Caught Stealing From Passengers' Luggage On Flight

Baggage Handler Caught Stealing From Passengers' Luggage On Flight

There's always certain fears people have with airports and flying, with the most common being the plane coming down.

Second to that is to do with luggage. Whether it's you worrying about packing something you shouldn't have, which could cause a major disruption, your cases getting lost or things being broken, it's another area of anxiety.

Airport staff don't tend to help either, as they suspect everyone is up to something (which is their job, to be fair), asking you questions like 'has your luggage been unattended at any point?' Well, it's been in the loft for a year and then on one of your fucking planes for two hours, so yeah.

While you may not think it, your bags being loaded onto a plane isn't as safe as it seems...

In the clip 27-year-old luggage handler was caught by his bosses going through passengers' bags, stealing their possessions.

It was filmed at Phuket International Airport, on a flight set to depart to Singapore. Luckily he was caught and arrested by Airports of Thailand and Tourism police, and was then charged.

The Phuket Gazette reports that they found a Bluetooth speaker on his possession, so his haul wasn't as big as he'd expected.

"We have launched an immediate investigation and will work with Airports of Thailand, our ground handler BAGS and our local security company to ensure the security of our customers' property on-board our flights."

In the footage the 'opportunist' identifies the bags that don't have any padlocks on, meaning he can freely rummage around in them and look for anything of value. When he doesn't find anything he zips them back up and tosses them aside.

The employee is not a part of the Jetstar airline, but instead works for a third party company called BAGS, brought in to 'look after' passengers' luggage.

BAGS reportedly provides their service for around 90 airlines in Thailand, so it's possible that this isn't the thief's first time sieving through people's cases.
