Not going anywhere: the Phuket baggage handler being handled

Phuket Airport Baggage Handler Accused of Stealing iPhone from Luggage

Wednesday, June 12, 2013
PHUKET: A baggage loader was arrested last night at Phuket International Airport and accused of pilfering passengers' bags on the way to aircraft.

The man, named as Kittisak Sanusan, was handed over to Tachatchai police by officials at the airport who spotted what he was doing using a security camera.

He was caught with an iPhone in his possession about 7pm last night. He is likely to be denied bail before a court appearance.

Baggage handlers at Phuket airport work for a private contractor, not the managers, Airports of Thailand.

Travellers are constantly being advised never to put valuables in the bags that are stowed on aircraft.
