Thieves take to the skies

Criminal gangs have resorted to stealing from passengers on aeroplanes, police say.

While one case of theft on planes was recorded in 2011, 18 such reports have been received so far this year.

The thefts occur mostly on regional flights, and some of the thieves are suspected to be syndicate members from China, who work in groups of three or four.

A good venue to pick pocket from sleeping victims!
So, next time, no valuable in overhead carriage bags.
What a nuisance to travellers!
