After waiting hours for her luggage to arrive at baggage claim, an airlines passenger tracked down her luggage to the home of an airport worker, according to a report by CNN:

“A Florida man is facing a felony grand theft charge in Broward County after a plucky airline passenger scheduled to fly out of Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in March tracked her stolen luggage to the man’s home, according to the probable cause affidavit in the case.

“Junior Geneus Bazile, 29, of Fort Lauderdale has been charged with grand theft in the third degree.

“The victim was slated to leave the airport on a Spirit Airlines flight the evening of March 3, but the airline canceled the flight and told all passengers they could retrieve their checked luggage on the baggage belt at Terminal 4, the affidavit said.

“Paola Garcia told CNN affiliate WPLG in Miami that she usually takes her suitcase onboard, but this time, she was told she had to check it. Garcia said waited at least two hours for her pink roller bag, which contained an Apple MacBook, Apple iPad, Apple Watch, jewelry, high-end woman’s clothing and toiletries. It never came out on the luggage belt.”
