Sydney woman arrested over airport jewellery theft

Authorities have arrested a woman over the alleged theft of more than $50,000 in luxury goods, including jewellery, from a store at the Sydney International Airport.

Police executed a search warrant at the 39-year-old woman’s home in Kingsgrove, southern Sydney, following a complaint by the store on 9 January.

Australian Federal Police (AFP) investigators discovered a haul of designer jewellery, including several Cartier pieces.

"This woman allegedly abused her position within the airport terminal for personal gain," AFP detective superintendent Morgan Blunden told The Daily Telegraph.

“The AFP has a positive working relationship with airport businesses to prevent, detect and respond to this type of activity.

“Due to the cooperation of the store, as well as our longstanding partnership with Sydney Airport Corporation, we were able to resolve this matter swiftly, which is a testament to our working relationships.”

During the search, investigators found four bracelets, a men's pendant, earrings, and other items of interest, including a Sydney Airport visitor pass. The items were seized, and the woman was arrested.

The woman has been charged with larceny by clerks or servants — an offence with a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail.
