It helps if you are a contortionist
An airport bus company in Barcelona Spain could not figure out how valuables were being stolen from their buses, until an alert passenager noticed a man speaking to a piece of luggage.
The man's bag was deceptively heavy, and warm.
The theft worked by having one man zip the other inside a bag and load him into the baggage compartment, where he used a headlamp and a sharp tool to rifle through the other passenger's luggage during the 90-minute ride.
He communicated with his partner on the bus with a cell phone. When the bus stopped, his partner wrestled the heavy bag full of his partner and the stolen valuables off the bus.
Krzysztof Grzegorz M, 29, and Jouoastaw K, 31, were charged with theft.
