Two workers at Gatwick Airport have been arrested by police investigating the alleged theft of duty-free goods. The pair were seen acting suspiciously and stopped just after 6am today by officers running an operation into thefts at the West Sussex airport.
Police examined bags they were carrying and discovered sealed bottles of perfume and other duty-free items. A property in Crawley was also being searched as part of the inquiry. The pair - a 22-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman, both from Crawley - were arrested on suspicion of theft. A police spokesman said both worked for a contractor based at the airport, and not for the site's owner, Gatwick Airport Ltd.
