People who travel depend on airport workers to get their luggage safely from one place to the next.

Sadly, some baggage handlers seem to have sticky fingers and remove expensive items from passengers’ luggage.

Police in Thailand have arrested three men who worked as baggage handlers at the Phuket Airport after they were accused of stealing items from the luggage.

Police have released photos of about 100 items that were seized from the suspects, police Chief Col Jirasak Sieamsak said.

The items include laptop computers, cell phones, watches, sunglasses, jewelry, and alcohol.

The suspects were identified as Chakrit Janprasert, 23, Nirut Saksri, 29, and Manot Nakpijit, 30, all from Phichit.
