Thief Steals $238,000 from Air Antilles Plane

A pretty clever thief stole $238,000 from an Air Antilles flight from Guadeloupe to St. Maarten by faking an illness and spending his time on the plane in the bathroom, where he removed panels to enter the aircraft’s cargo hold, where the money was located.  The plan was clearly well-researched, as the passenger, who has not yet been caught, knew that a brinks truck would be loading more than $1,000,000 in bills onto the plane.  He then told a flight attendant he didn’t feel well, and entered the bathroom which, he knew, was on top of the cargo hold where the money was located.

He then told flight staff that he’d need an ambulance waiting for him when he landed.  That caused a distraction upon landing, and allowed him to walk through the airport without having to go through customs.  Police interrogated his seatmate, but no cash has been found.

  1. I saw that movie. It starred George Clooney, Ray Liotta, Brad Pitt, and Paul Sorvino, right?
