Clever Air-born Thief

Recently an unusual theft took place on an Air Antilles flight. Prior to take off $1.6 million in cash was stuffed into the cargo hold by a Brink’s security guard for transportation between the island of Guadeloupe and St. Maarten. However, $238,000 didn’t make it.

It seems that a very clever thief removed the panels that separated the toilet from the cargo area and made it off the plane and out of the airport with the cash. It also appears he might have had an accomplice who helped him fake an illness.

Here’s the story.

You can’t make this stuff up.
