Its a cross between “Snakes on a Plane, ”Shawshank Redemption” and “Catch me if You Can” … , but in real life.
A man pretending to be sick, went to the bathroom aboard a plane, tears apart the toilet, sneaks into the cargo hold, and steals $238,000. An ambulance arrived at the tarmac to meet the man, who suddenly stated he felt better. The result, the man walked out of the airport without having to go through the normal security checks.
An ingenious thief swiped almost $250,000 on a flight in the Caribbean after sneaking into the cash-laden cargo hold via the restroom, police said Thursday.
A Brink’s security employee placed three sacks of cash containing a total $1.6 million in the hold of the Air Antilles plane before it headed from the French island of Guadeloupe to the Franco-Dutch island of Saint Martin.
Think this was not an inside job?
