This week’s ‘Scum of the Week’ Award goes to two airport cleaners, Anthony Currant, 65, and Abdul Hussain, 30 whose day job included nicking the contents of travellers’ luggage during shifts at Luton Airport.

Bedfordshire Police investigated after a large number of thefts from luggage were reported. They installed hidden cameras which captured the low-life’s patting down bags they diverted from the main carousels into a room where no other staff were about.  Once bags were identified as having likely goodies inside, the thieves opened them, stole the contents & replaced them back on the carousels where the bags were fed through to the owners.

The pair targeted cigarettes & tobacco, cash & electrical items such as iPods & cameras.

During the investigation police discovered over Ă‚ÂŁ30,000 in cash at the thieves’ homes, together with thousands of cigarettes (which they were selling to co-workers), electrical goods & jewellery.

The cleaners have been jailed for six & three months & sacked from their jobs.
