A Chinese woman has been arrested on theft charges after she picked up a belt bag containing cash and a mobile phone that had been dropped by an Iranian man at Suvarnabhumi airport, and put it inside her luggage.

Police and airport security officials checked footage from close circuit cameras, which showed the tourists belt bag dropped on the floor and then picked up by a Chinese woman walking past. She put the belt bag in her luggage and then walked towards the waiting zone for outbound passengers.

She was then held for questioning.

Speaking via an interpreter, the Chinese passenger insisted she did not steal the bag, but just picked it up as she was not aware who owed it.

The woman was charged with theft at the airport. The offence carries a jail term of 1-5 years and/or a fine of 2,000-10,000 baht.  She was held in police custody at the airport police station.
