Passenger Steals $238,000 By Crawling Through Airplane Bathroom


Stop me if you've heard this one before: A man walks into an airplane bathroom, tears it apart, sneaks into the cargo hold, and leaves with $238,000. It happened, police say.

The incident occurred on a recent inter-Caribbean flight, and it has the makings of an elaborately planned heist. Foxnews.com reports:

Police are seeking a man who complained he felt ill and spent most of the journey in the lavatory. In fact, he was removing panels to gain access to the hold in the rear of the plane.

Shortly before landing, the unnamed man -- who was traveling with a woman who appeared concerned about his health -- asked a flight attendant for an ambulance to meet him on the tarmac, witnesses said.

When the ambulance arrived, the man said he felt suddenly better and walked out of the airport without having to go through the normal security checks and disappeared, police said.

The woman was reportedly questioned but did not have any of the missing money.
