Airport Security Fears / STOLEN Baggage at YPPH

Lost your bags at Perth lately?

From today's 'West Australian',

"There are fears of a possible security breach at Perth Domestic Airport after Police uncovered security tags among items seized from a (Perth Suburban) home yesterday.
Twenty electronic security swipe cards, some belonging to a security firm that operates at the airport, and at least 40 pieces of stolen luggage were found during a raid yesterday, Police allege."

The article goes on to say Local Police stumbled across the items after stopping a utility which was carrying a stolen motorcycle, in the suburbs, yesterday morning.
Police checked the luggage and said it appeared to be owned by foreign and interstate travellers. It has not yet been revealed how or when the bags were stolen......

So there ya go! Mr Plod sees a suspicious 'ute in the suburbs carrying a reported stolen motorbike in the back, pull it over, and whaddya know??

'Pure Luck' that one eh!!

Did 'they' - the 'baddies' - have an ASIC??

And....so much for 'Airport Security'........

Dunno 'bout that 'FD'.

The news last night showed pics of the bike - it is a 'speccy' flash one alright.

Maybe the type / brand / colour was the clue...?
I'm afraid I didn't notice the plates or absence thereof.

And, no mention in the paper of how the cops identified the bike.

But, LUV IT anyway!!!

Stolen Luggage

Hi All

Interesting forum. I happen to have my bags mispalced last week on Wednesday after operating a Mel - Per service from the QF terminal. Does anyone have the details of the police station that made the arrests, I would like to contact them to see if my bag is sitting in an evidence room somewhere.

Cheers

Ang

Maybe from now on they should redirect lost baggage inquiries to the Perth cop shop.
