One for me, one for you

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 £30,000 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.

    You might consider a consolation prize for Sgt Farrer, 200.

    Sergeant Steve Farrer, of London Luton Airport SNT, said: “Since their arrests, recorded baggage pilferages have dropped by 77%. Travellers can be reassured that we take the security of their luggage very seriously.”

    The discovery of £30,000 in cash alone at the thieves’ homes must reassure travellers of your eventual reaction to decomposing cheese on your upper lip, Sergeant Farrer.

    I believe that he art of good communication is making sure you say something in terms that the recipient will understand.

    Once again, I haven’t a clue what the fuck you are on about Melv.

    Here’s the deal, if you want to continue posting on this blog, cut the pretentious twat-talk otherwise I’m just gonna delete it. This place isn’t turning into a repository for your up-your-own-arse drivel.

    I trust my message was a lot clearer than all yours.

    “Twat-talk”

    200, your command of the English language renders me breathless.

    Even more so than Dr. Melv Tourette!

    I recently returned home from a visit to the UK. Hoping to avoid duty on an I-pad, I cunningly concealed it in my baggage, wrapped up in a pair of soiled underpants.

    You can’t rely on airport security. You have to take your own precautions against theft.

    Dear 200. I haven’t had the pleasure of hearing (reading) someone speak as plainly as that for years. It is high time people are able to say “Fuck off” to someone that annoys them or talks ‘shite’. More power to your elbow and may your top lip decompose into cheese also (I think).
    PS I think I love you!!

    Melv-bating where it`s due, but I think what he meant was that if Sgt Farrer took luggage security so seriously how did a couple of minimum-wage idiots manage to pilfer 30n grand in cash alone.

    Top marks to the Sgt for getting the obligatory quote about ‘reassurance’ and a percentage stat in a two line statement.

    Isn’t that typical? Missing out on all the fun to my rainy day hobby of extreme ironing.

    Lol… I saw a TV slot about extreme ironing… one chap had his board up a tree; one on top of a house; one chap even did his whilst skiing…

    Do you wear a bandana?

    I bet you wear a funny hat…

    Good for you having a sense of humour.

    I think it would be a shame to ban you, you occasionally stir things up for the better, if only you stopped being so personal… I may even become a fan…
