You would think that you would feel safe from robbery on a plane, but unfortunately this is untrue for a flight from Jakarta to Singapore on Sunday.
According to the Straits Times, two Chinese nationals are alleged to have attempted to steal from sleeping passengers carry-on luggage. The pair rifled through bags stowed in overhead cabins, in one case they found US$5,000 in a laptop bag.
They were caught in the act by a crew member on the Singapore Airlines flight, and once they landed in Changi Airport, police were there to make the arrests.
According to the newspaper, there have been several incidents such as this in the last month. Police, airlines and crew have been alerted.
