Police catch FLL Airport luggage thief

Police have arrested a man accused of 10 luggage robberies at the Fort Lauderdale International Airport.

Langston Austin, a convicted armed robber from Pensacola, is being held without bond. He's charged with three counts of grand theft.

Broward police began investigating the crimes after ransacked bags started turning up inside men's restrooms at the airport.

"His method of operation was the same every day. He would pick (bags) up in Terminal One, take them to Terminal Two, open them up, untag them so that customers or passengers would not be able to identify them later and go through them and later discard them after he picked out his items of choice," said Liz Cazadilla-Fiallo, of the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Austin also had an active warrant out of Miami Dade County for cocaine possession at the time of his arrest.
