Mr. Ovuironye Mathew Dennis, travelling onboard a 6.45am Aero flight was caught today while stealing about N350k from a luggage belonging to an Austrian, Novotny Anton, another passenger on the flight. Dennis, 31, seating on flight seat No. 23C, was
spotted by a member of the airline’s cabin crew when he removed the Austrian’s bag from the cockpit as if he was changing his seat.
He was also caught with a wrap of marijuana. He had removed the bag from the cockpit where the Austrian sat, took it to his own seat, giving the impression that he was changing his seat and stole a sum of N150, 000 and 500 Euros belonging to the Austrian. But he ran out of luck when a female cabin crew raised alarm, asked him to remain seated while he was trying to return the bag to the cockpit before the Austrian could suspect any foul play.
“While trying to return the bag I asked him to seat down. But he became uncomfortable before the plane landed and the white man raised alarm that he couldn’t find his bag,” the attendant said. Immediately the plane landed at the Abuja airport, the Austrian couldn’t find his bag and raised alarm, but the cabin crew member told him to check the bag with Dennis……. who said he was just helping him to keep his bag so dt someone else won’t steal from it……
