Hong Kong: In-flight thefts on the rise, HK$4.45 mln stolen this year.
Sixty cases on in-flight theft were reported in Hong Kong in the nine months to September, a 25 percent rise from the whole of 2014. The stolen items were estimated to be worth a combined HK$4.45 million, the highest in nearly four years, Sing Tao Daily reported, citing data released by the police. Thirty-one suspects were arrested in Hong Kong, none of them locals. From 2012 to September 2015, 216 cases of in-flight theft were recorded. Secretary for Security Lai Tung-kwok said the trend is going up. Travelers tend to put their valuables such as cash, camera, jewelry and passport in their carry-on luggage. These bags are placed in overhead bins, making them easy pickings for thieves.
