Newly Bought Clothes Mysteriously Escape Your Luggage And Return Themselves

Ah yes, the Philadelphia Airport. You’ll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. A baggage handler has been charged with two counts of theft after a woman noticed that $550 worth of clothes (with the price tags still on) had mysteriously wandered out of her luggage.

The Philadelphia Inquirer says the woman searched her condo and then called Nordstrom, who told her that the items had meandered all the way to the King of Prussia mall where they returned themselves. How very, very unusual…

American Airlines reviewed the surveillance tapes and pointed the finger at their baggage crew chief, who was then arrested by the Philadelphia police.
