Australian Woman Steals 18 Bags From Airport Luggage Carousel

The more I think about this, I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often.

When you land on an international flight, the luggage carousels are usually in a secure area, accessible only to other passengers arriving on international flights. You collect your luggage, and then exit the secure area into the arrivals hall, which is full of waiting family and friends.

But for domestic flights, in Australia at least, the luggage carousels are land side, and anyone can just walk into the airport and straight up to the carousel.
