JFK Baggage Handlers Charged with Theft

(NEW YORK) -- Five baggage handlers at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport were charged with theft on Friday.

Checks and money orders meant for recipients in Japan, China, and South Korea were allegedly stolen by baggage handlers who were supposed to load them onto international flights.

Prosecutors say they found checks intended for child support and a money order mailed by a United States serviceman.

The five men were also accused of taking credit cards from the mail and using them at Best Buy vending machines at the airport to buy iPad minis and other electronics.
