DUBAI // Two airport baggage-handlers have been sentenced to three months in jail for stealing chewing gum and chocolate from passengers’ luggage.
Kenyan A S, 24, and his compatriot J N, 37, were searching through bags that arrived at Dubai International Airport on a flight from Bangkok but failed to find anything valuable, so instead took the confectionery, prosecutors said.
A S stole a packet of gum worth Dh3 while J N stole a Dh5 chocolate bar.
Both men, who have been fired from their jobs, denied theft charges at Dubai Criminal Court last month. The court ordered them to repay the cost of the stolen confectionery.
