In flight Robbery suspect detained aboard South African flight heading to Hong Kong.

 

Sleeping passengers on South African Airline plane woke up to their belonging stolen during the 13 hours flight from South Africa to Hong Kong.  Luckily for them, other passenger noticed a gang of thieves going through overhead cabin to steal valuables like gadget, cash and other expensive items. 

They alerted the cabin crew and the suspects were arrested when the flight landed in Honk Kong.

“The rest of the passengers disembarked and suspects identified were ordered to remain in the aircraft and were searched by the police in Hong Kong,” SAA spokesman Tlali Tlali told South Africa Times Live News. 

“Nothing was found [on] them during the search … The items complained of were, however, recovered by the cleaning staff as they cleaned the aircraft.”
