- The Airport Company has arrested a worker for stealing phones of air passengers
- About 7 phones were seen stuffed in the uniform of the Ground Handling Company worker
- Management of Kotoka handed him over to the police to assist with investigations
The Ghana Airport Company says the staff of the Ground Handling Company operating at the Airport, who was caught in a video with stolen mobile phones, has been arrested by the Aviation Security of Ghana Airports.
The man, whose name is yet to be disclosed, is reported to have stolen many items after handling an aircraft. The Airport Company has confirmed the development happened on Tuesday, December 15, 2020.
A video sighted by YEN.com.gh shows the busted thief dressed in blue overall with a reflector jacket which has the name one of the cargo handling companies at the airport inscribed at the back.
In the video, the man is seen bending down and removing the items he stole from his books and socks.
After removing a number of the stolen phones from his right foot, he intentionally refused to search the left.
This led to a shout by one of the men around and when he eventually touched the left boot, there were more of the phones.
He was then asked to drop down his trousers for a proper search to confirm whether he had any more of the items hidden elsewhere.
After the search, the phones counted to have to been stolen by the man were 10 in number and one guy was heard saying they included iPhone 8 Plus among others.
“GACL confirms that the man has been handed over to the Airport District police for interrogation and appropriate action”, excerpts of their press statement revealed.
