Couple Who Stole Asiana Flight Crash Luggage Get Jail Time
Remember these two rascals???
Via NY Daily News:
A married couple working for United Airlines have been given jail sentences of less than a year for stealing luggage from San Francisco International Airport during the chaos of last year’s Asiana Airlines crash. Surveillance footage shows Sean Sharif Crudup, 44, walking into an empty luggage office July 6, 2013, as emergency crews and staff were distracted by the wrecked aircraft that killed three. He steals a piece of unattended luggage and hands it over to his wife, Raychas Elizabeth Thomas, 32, the video shows.
The pair – both customer service representatives with the airline – escaped the airport with the stolen goods and later tried to sell the clothing back to the Nordstrom department store where the victims had recently bought the items. The victims didn’t immediately realize their luggage was missing.
The couple pleaded no contest to charges of grand theft and possessing stolen property and were sentenced to jail — nine months for Crudup and six months for Thomas. They both also received three years of probation and were ordered to pay about $6,000 in restitution to Nordstrom, reported the Los Angeles Times. The husband and wife were arrested July 25 at the airport before they could board a flight to Hawaii to celebrate their birthdays.
The San Francisco Gate reports Thomas will surrender into custody in August and Crudup, in December.
SMH. Good…hopefully these two buttholes have learned their lesson!!
