It is being reported in todays Por Esto newspaper, that as a result of theft report filed by Canadian tourists, Federal and State police have broken up a large theft operation at Cancuns airport . The Canadian tourists had reported the theft of a camera, two perfumes, a cell phone charger and a watch, valued at 5900 pesos, was stolen from their luggage.
It is reported three were arrested and were part of a larger band working for Passenger Handling Services S. A. C. V., which is responsible for servicing aircraft and handling of baggage at the airport. These are not airline employees.
Good work by the area police! Of course, I have no idea why anyone would place such items in their checked luggage!Edited: 01 March 2012, 11:25
