Watch a Baggage Handler Stealing from a Passenger’s Luggage

It’s often been said that there are two kinds of luggage: carry on and lost.

When you check a bag your things may get stolen. Employees may hide drugs in your luggage. Gate checked bags turn into gate tossed bags. I don’t want my bags where British Airways told employees to stop urinating.

Somehow I missed this video when it first came out in the fall but it’s going viral on social media now.

A baggage handler in Phuket, Thailand rifles through someone’s luggage and ultimately steals a bluetook speaker off of a flight bound for Singapore on October 10. The theft was filmed, police arrested him, and he returned the speaker.
