A group of luggage handlers at Los Angeles International Airport are to face misdemeanour theft charges for allegedly stealing personal items from celebrities including hotel heiress Paris Hilton and singer Keyshia Cole. A spokesperson for City Attorney ROCKY DELGADILLO announced their decision to file the charges against 10 airport employees and one transient yesterday (22MAR07) for reportedly taking items like watches and jewellery from celebrities' baggage. Eight of the suspects worked in the airport luggage screening department and have been dismissed from their jobs. At the time WENN went to press, Hilton's spokesman Elliot Mintz could not be reached for comment.
