Skycap Busted In Fort Lauderdale Airport Sting

Police: She Was Arrested After Picking Up Unattended Computer

At first glance, the thought that a skycap carried someone's luggage to the car doesn't seem very newsworthy. But consider: police at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport say it was someone else's luggage -- a laptop computer in this case -- that skycap Yhovania Bryan carried to her own car.

The result? Bryan was busted.

Broward County, FL, deputies say they planted the laptop on a bench in Terminal Four last week. The computer sat there for about a half-hour, they said, before Bryan casually walked by, picked it up, and headed out the door -- right past a uniformed law officer.

She was arrested before she made it to her car.

Deputies said they initiated the sting investigation after several travelers complained that their possessions had been stolen while left unattended for mere moments, as they were off for a cup of coffee or a bagel. It's the fourth time in a year an undercover sting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood has netted an arrest.
