Skycaps Accused of Stealing Cash Collected From Overweight Baggage Fees

Nine Miami International Airport skycap employees were arrested after a nine-month investigation allegedly revealed that they stole cash by charging passengers overweight baggage fees when they should not have done so. Additionally, as a result of under-reporting the amount of luggage loaded onto aircraft, the skycaps supposedly endangered the lives of American Airlines passengers due to the risk of improper records to ensure that the weight of the aircraft is balanced.
