LAX Baggage Handlers Caught Up In Major Theft Ring From Bags To Bitches

March 30, 2014

Police say, that a group of baggage handlers pulled off one of the largest property heists in LAX airport history.
For months, detectives said, workers rifled through bags looking for items to steal.Basically everything of value — be it electronics, jewelry and items — that could be stolen in seconds would be removed from bags,” LAX Police Chief Pat Gannon said. “They’d just open up the suitcases and rifle through them and pocket valuables.” Police said that the workers took the stolen items home and sold them, sometimes using Craigslist. LAX is still trying to determine how long the ring was operating and the exact value of all the stolen property. They suspect thousands of items were taken. LAX property heist goes from bags to bitches.
