Airport arrests highlight baggage claim risks

The number of times that Anthony Hargrove has been arrested on charges of stealing bags from the carousels of Chicago's two airports, Midway and O'Hare. The 59-year-old's history of theft highlights the vulnerabilities of airport baggage claims, areas that are often open to the public and near quick escape routes, the Chicago Tribune reports. Airlines usually bear responsibility for security at carousels, but many carriers believe their liability ends once the bags have been delivered, aviation experts say. Ultimately, the space is a public area, resulting in airlines and airports blaming each other when something goes missing, they added. "Once it hits the carousel, boy, that is the grayest area of all in my mind," said Joe Brancatelli, editor of a website for business travelers. Before 9/11, security guards stood by baggage claim exits at many airports, ensuring that luggage tags matched the ticket claims held by travelers. But airlines have largely stopped doing that because it was too costly. — tbt*
