Police: Worker at airport stole from blind woman
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A worker at Lambert Airport in St. Louis is accused of stealing from a blind woman in a wheelchair after helping her at the airport.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 23-year-old Justin Gillespie of St. Louis was charged Thursday with felony stealing. He does not have a listed attorney.
Gillespie works for AirServ, a contractor which provides passenger services at the airport.
Airport police say Gillespie wheeled the woman through security on Jan. 3. She then asked to use the restroom. A security camera allegedly shows Gillespie reaching into her bag as he waited for her outside the restroom. When the woman arrived home she noticed $800 was missing.
