    ...maybe it ended up here.


    Surprised this doesn't happen more often.

    Before that guy's mustache turned gray, I bet it was a helluva pornstache.

    That's just nuts. I wonder if you could honestly make a living on what you could take out of people's luggage?

    I mean, I'm sure there's the occasional high-value, pawnable item. But the bulk of it is just other people's underwear, right?

    I sure as hell don't put anything valuable in checked luggage when I fly.

    That's why you steal only women's luggage.

    I once loaded 107 42-inch flat-panel TVs on a flight to Quito, Ecuador.

    As checked bags.

    So I guess you do have a chance.

    This happens at airports all over the world. I am suprised it is not in the media more than it is.

    I'd love to know over what time period these thefts were taking place. Seems to me that the airport ought to be in some trouble over an obvious lack of security.

    There isn't an airport in the U.S. that shouldn't be in trouble, then. Just about every one I fly through, there is nothing stopping you from grabbing a bag off the baggage claim and walking out. They never have anyone checking tags. Can anyone name an airport where they still check people?

    I think they still check at Love Field in Dallas.

    It's been several years since I've been to Vegas but they were always militant about checking people's tags upon leaving baggage claim.
