A Dubai airport baggage handler stole jewellery and perfume from a passenger's bag, Dubai Criminal Court heard on Sunday.

On November 3 last year, the 24-year-old Nepali defendant, who has worked as a baggage handler for nine months, searched through the bag after placing it in an airplane owned by a private Russian aviation company.

Prosecutors said he then stole a silver ring and a bottle of perfume valued at Dh35.

The man was caught while passing through security, where he was searched, after he finished his shift.

At Dubai Criminal Court, the man faced charges of theft and attempting to steal cash from passengers’ bags.

The next hearing will be held at the end of the month.
