MIAMI (AP) -- Two men face multiple charges of grand theft for taking baggage from carousels at Miami International Airport.
The Miami Herald reports 37-year-old Alis Jimenez and 41-year-old Juan Fidalgo were arrested July 25 at a Miami home. Police say they found numerous pieces of luggage inside the home.
Jimenez was charged with 16 counts of grand theft for stealing some $25,000 worth of items. Fidalgo faces two counts of grand theft for taking in excess of $2,000 in goods.
Police say the men also admitted to taking luggage from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Palm Beach International Airport.
On June 11, authorities spotted the men taking baggage on airport security camera. They had stolen items at least three more times before their arrest because police didn't know who they were.
