A contract cleaning worker for Airserv at JFK was arrested for stealing 1429 liquor minis from aircraft she was cleaning.
“[A] witness tipped off American Airlines security officials” and when police searched her apartment:
They say they found 1,429 mini-bottles of unopened liquor, seven iPads, two laptops, 19 Kindle tablets and a “large amount” of various toiletries
If you lost something on an American Airlines flight at JFK and it didn’t turn up at lost and found, you may now know why.
No Shaggy Defense from the woman, either. She copped to the thefts:
“I took them from work,” Cullum, a contractor with Air Serv airline-service company, allegedly told cops. “I’ve been stealing for the past three years.”
The irony, of course, is that all she’d have needed was Intercontinental Royal Ambassador status and she could have had all the mini-bottles of liquor she wanted, legally.
The woman has been fired and has been charged with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.
