Indonesia: Airport Police on the Hunt for Lion Air Baggage Workers.

Jakarta. Soekarno-Hatta International Airport Police are searching for 18 Lion Air baggage handlers who have gone missing after a theft ring working within Soetta was revealed last week.

Airport Police chief Sr. Comr. Royce Harry Langie on Wednesday said 18 male employees had not come to work since the theft made national headlines, but "it is still unknown whether they are senior or junior baggage handlers. There is no further information [on their employment history] yet."

Lion Air employees Saefulloh, 22, Madun, 29, Angga Jaya Pratama, 28 and Andi Hermanto, 29, were arrested and subsequently fired from the airline after they were caught red-handed stealing items from passengers' checked bags.

After a complaint on Nov. 16 Airport Police joined forces with airport operator Angkasa Pura II to install CCTV cameras in baggage handling areas. Resulting footage showed a group of handlers opening luggage, rifling though the contents and stealing items. Police claim Lion Air's security guards were also involved.

One of the suspects admitted to have stolen passengers' belongings on 13 different occasions, using a pen to break the zipper on suitcases.
