True, flying on an airplane has become a miserable experience over the last few years. Flights are delayed or cancelled without any notice, restaurants charge several times what they would in a normal location, TSA checkpoints are excruciatingly long and time consuming…and then there’s the constantly shrinking seating area. I’m 6’2″/250, and sliding into an aircraft seat is an exercise in contortion. I need an engine hoist to extract me at the end of the flight. Luckily, I get a free Coke and some peanuts during the flight to calm my innner beats. Oh, wait…
Still another frustrating aspect of flying is the chance of the airline losing your luggage. It happens all the time. Sometimes, though, your property disappears due to a much more sinister reason…theft. While it’s rare, it does happen. Deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office say they began an investigation into several reports of stolen property at the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport recently. When the investigation concluded, they arrested 19-year-old Giovanni De Luca and charged him with two counts of grand theft. The case started when a traveler reported that her suitcase never arrived at her destination. The victim said the bag contained items totaling $1,600. Luckily, the bag also contained an Apple AirTag, which tracks the location of the bag. Shortly after, another missing bag report was made, this time with $15,000 worth of jewelry inside. After a brief investigation, deputies questioned De Luca and searched his home. Deptuties found the stolen merchandise in his home. The man admitted to taking the items and to finding the AirTag and throwing it away. Source: CBSNews.com
