Now this is a daring crime. A passenger on a flight on Air Antilles to Guadeloupe reportedly complained that he was having stomach issues and stayed in the bathroom for almost the entire flight. After the plane landed, a Brink’s security employee discovered that the $238,000 left with luggage in the hold had been taken.
The passenger apparently went into the bathroom and removed the panels on the wall to get into the hold, where he stole the money. He then asked for an ambulance to meet the plane when it landed. However, he then felt better and walked out of the airport with a female companion.
Despite his success, he may be a bit put out to learn that the Brink’s man had three sacks of cash worth $1.6million in the hold. Of course, it might be difficult to hull that amount of money off the plane without drawing attention.
