A sleeping passenger from Spain had his cell phone and shoes stolen at Düsseldorf airport, which he had taken off for his nap. The German federal police quickly found the suspect: everything was recorded by video cameras.
As the federal police announced on Wednesday, the 43-year-old Spaniard reported to the officials at the West German airport at around 2.30 a.m. His cell phone and expensive shoes disappeared when he fell asleep briefly on a bench.
After 20 minutes, the police had found the alleged perpetrator in the airport. The 38-year-old had the stolen goods with him. “The Spanish citizen was overjoyed to continue his journey with his shoes on,” said the police. (SDA)
