Police have arrested a senior Israir Airlines flight attendant who reportedly stole money that passengers donated to charity while on board.
On Augsut 24, law enforcement officials arrested a 52-year-old male Israir staffer at Ben-Gurion International Airport, according to Xinhuanet. Upon his arrest, the man admitted to the crime, which allegedly took place on a route between Tel Aviv and Eilat.
Meanwhile, the unnamed flight service manager supposedly would routinely collect the money-stuffed envelops, and pocket them for himself, instead of handing them over to ground crews upon deplaning.
The Times notes that a search of the suspect’s suitcase and home revealed “numerous such envelopes” each filled witth around $2,500 in cash.
