NAIA Theft vs. Baggage Handler Stole Toothbrush from Passenger in Dubai.


In a report
"A baggage handler at Dubai airport has been sentenced to three months in jail for stealing a toothbrush from a passenger’s luggage. Dubai Court of First Instance heard the Pakistani also took an Apple iPhone charger as he loaded bags on to a plane at Dubai International Airport Terminal 3. The 24-year-old was spotted taking the items by a security guard, who confronted the worker shortly after the theft on May 1.

The baggage handler was later arrested and put on trial accused of theft. In court, he told Judge Mohammed Jamal he had been hungry and opened a passenger’s bag looking for food. He said: “I opened some bags searching for snacks or sweets. I found the toothbrush and the charger and took them instead.” Prosecutors said an Emirati security officer, aged 30, tasked with monitoring CCTV footage spotted the handler acting suspicious. He said: “I saw him open a passenger’s bag and steal something before loading it on the airplane. “


At first he denied opening the bags and stealing but later he took a toothbrush and phone charger from his pocket. We called Dubai Police, who came and arrested him.” During the investigation, the accused said he would open passengers’ bags to steal anything he could find."

READ: BAGGAGE ALLOWANCES FROM MIDDLE EAST MAJOR AIRLINES
DAILYMAIL UK
Two baggage handlers were caught on camera at the airport in Riyadh
Video shows them hurling luggage without regard for the contents




  • Clip begins with a suitcase being thrown and landing with a heavy thud
  • Some bags appeared to be heavy or wrapped as though they were fragile





  • Authorities said two supervisors and three workers have been sacked

  • In a report from Saudi Gazette: "Five Saudi Arabian Airlines’ employees at King Khaled International Airport in Riyadh were Tuesday fired from their jobs following their poor and careless handling of passengers’ luggage at the conveyor belt.

    The General Authority for Civil Aviation (GACA) announced this after thoroughly investigating  the poor ground service at the airport’s conveyor belt.

    The incident of  mishandling the baggage came to light after a video clip went viral. The clip showed two baggage handlers passing luggage carelessly — literally throwing bags and suitcases on the conveyor belt after retrieving it from the luggage hold."


    Another report says stolen items were found  in airline baggage handlers in NAIA!

    Wrap Your Baggages to and from the Philippines?

    Please share this very important message especially to our fellow OFWs going home for vacation or going back here or anywhere in the Middle East 
    We have heard different stories from OFWs who are travelling for vacation, or returning after annual vacation complained about their baggages being ripped, some valuables were stolen, or worst, some were arrested for allegedly carrying dangerous drugs or prohibited items like bullets in NAIA which are often placed by syndicates and gangs in order to extort money or to traffic illegal drugs. 
    The following are some of the things you can do to protect yourself from being a victim of theft and 

    If you are buying new luggage bags, you can opt for PC (polycarbonate) bags or hard shell bag. The material of these kind of bags are difficult to rip off with knife, unlike the luggage bags made of canvass or fabric. Shell bags that have secure locks instead of zippers are also a much better choice .

     Shell bags that have secure locks instead of zippers are also a much better choice . 
    Watch this video how easily they can tamper a zipped luggage although it is already locked. 





    To avoid this from happening, and ending up with  ripped or lost baggage items, we recommend to you to have it wrapped with cling film or plastic wrap. Here in Saudi Arabia, there are service stations that does plastic wrapping with SAR 20 charge for each baggage. In return, you get added security that your bags, luggage and boxes are free of scratches or damages, and the content are safer not to be opened by someone at the airport. In Saudi Arabia and Middle East airports you can find many kiosk or service stations for baggage wrapping  at the departure areas. If there is none in your area, you can buy a roll of CLING FILM or clear plastic wrap that is available from the grocery section and wrap it around the bags, or boxes several times to seal and protect your luggage from hands of thieves, drug syndicates or gangs who might either take items from your bag or place prohibited items that could land you in jail. 


    If you are going back to your host country from the Philippines, it is a must, and we highly recommend that you wrap your baggages and plead for everybody to share this recommendation because this is important, and vital for the safety of our love ones travelling abroad.  For SR 10, we were able to buy a roll of cling wrap, enough to cover 3 luggages. 
    Many international airports are also offering this service like Secure Wrap in many airports in the USA.

    Please share this very important message especially to our fellow OFWs going home for vacation or going back here or anywhere in the Middle East

    (Our baggage that is not yet covered by plastic)






    We have heard different stories from OFWs who are travelling for vacation, or returning after annual vacation regarding their baggages being ripped, some valuables were stolen, or worst, some were arrested for allegedly carrying dangerous drugs or prohibited items like bullets in NAIA which are often placed by syndicates and gangs in order to extort money or to traffic illegal drugs. 

    The following are some of the things you can do to protect yourself from being a victim of theft and syndicates. 

    I. Choose Hard Shell Bags With Secure Locks: 
    If you are buying new luggage bags, you can opt for PC (polycarbonate) bags or hard shell bag. The material of these kind of bags are difficult to rip off with knife, unlike the luggage bags made of canvass or fabric. 


    Shell bags that have secure locks instead of zippers are also a much better choice .


    The video below shows how easy it is for anyone to tamper zipped luggage.


    II. Cling Wrap Your Luggage
    No matter what kind of suitcase you have, either it is hard shell or canvass, the best thing you can do to secure it is have it wrapped with plastic in the airport. 
    Image from Smart Women Travelers
    Here in Saudi Arabia, there are service stations or kiosk that does plastic wrapping with SAR 20 charge for each baggage. By doing this your belongings could be protected from scratches or damages while transporting them, and what's most important is that it cannot be easily opened or tampered by thieves and syndicates at the airport.

    In Saudi Arabia and Middle East airports,  kiosk or service stations for baggage wrapping can be found easily at the departure areas. If there is none in your area, you can buy a roll of CLING FILM or clear plastic wrap that is available from the grocery section and wrap it around the bags, or boxes several times to seal and protect your luggage from hands of thieves, drug syndicates or gangs who might either take items from your bag or place prohibited items that could land you in jail.
