Airport police captured Rehahlia Toufik, 33, at the hotel where he had checked in. They recovered US$9,200 (B295,356) in cash and filed a theft charge against him.

The capture came after Egyptian Mohamed Ibrahim sought help from police at the airport on Saturday night (Jan 6) after he had left a bag with $10,170 (B326,497) in cash at a CAT Telecom shop in the airport after buying a SIM card for his mobile phone.

Police said security camera footage showed a man they identified as Toufik taking the bag from the shop. Police tracked him and made the arrest after finding him staying at the hotel, whose name was withheld.
