The Asiana Airlines Flight 214 that crashed in San Francisco where a total of three passengers were killed, was first victimized when an intern at the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) thought it would be funny to submit racist names of the pilots on board to the media, now employees have taken it a step further.
Sean Crudup, a United customer service representative, and his fiancee Raychas Thomas were caught on surveillance video stealing the luggage of passengers of Flight 214. They were apprehended by authorities as they prepared to board a flight to Hawaii with two children. The two are out on bond and are set to be arraigned on August 26, 2013.
Sgt. Wes Matsuura of San Mateo County gave an account of what was seen on the surveillance video saying,
“Through surveillance footage we saw him rifling through bags. The footage also showed the bags being passed off to two women, one of them being his girlfriend.”
The luggage had been rerouted by different airlines and some bags reached the airport before some of the passengers causing a pile-up of bags. Once the three of them took the luggage, they hocked the merchandise at Nordstrom. But what they didn’t know is that the merchandise was owned by a well known customer of the store and they alerted the woman immediately. But the couple was already able to get $6,000 for the merchandise.
What an atrocity? The luggage could’ve very well belonged to one of the victims of the crash. But a thief probably makes sense of their crime by telling themself that the victim will never need it. Oh well, all’s well that ends well. They won’t be taking that trip to Hawaii until they earn it.
Watch the report.
