3 bag handlers at Vegas airport accused of looting luggage
The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Three contract baggage handlers at McCarran International 
Airport are facing felony criminal charges in what Las Vegas airport police 
described as a behind-the-scenes theft ring.

Las Vegas police Officer Laura Meltzer said Friday the recent arrests of Aaron 
Matthew Lopez and Jamarcus Domonique Harper, both 27, and 19-year-old Noah 
Javier Gonzalez, followed a two-week investigation of a man's Jan. 16 report 
that a gun was missing from his checked bag.

All three men face burglary, theft and stolen property charges. 

Meltzer says the three worked for Worldwide Flight Services, a luggage handling 
firm for Allegiant and Frontier airlines at the airport.
She says police are still investigating the thefts.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2kyIAMD ) items taken 
included luxury purses and guns.
