Man jailed over attempted bag theft


An ex-employee who walked into Glasgow Airport armed with secateurs and scissors to try to steal luggage has been jailed for 4 months after he admitted the theft. Peter Reilly, 31, was caught after he picked up a bag from the domestic arrivals carousel and tried to walk away with it.

Paisley Sheriff Court was told that although there were signs warning the public not to enter the area, there was no physical barrier. Mr Reilly was spotted as he entered the area where domestic passengers retrieve their luggage at 20:30 on August 9. Police watched as he strolled forward, took a bag from the carousel and tried to leave with it.

Mr. Reilly was stopped and the bag's rightful owner, a passenger who had flown to Glasgow from Cardiff, identified it as his property. The court was told a search of a bag the defendant was carrying revealed he had secateurs and scissors with him.

Sheriff David Pender said the secateurs and scissors had to be seen as an indication that the offence was premeditated. He added: 'I note you have 4 previous convictions for dishonesty. This is a very serious offence and people like you have to be discouraged from acting in this way.'
