A man and a woman flew into Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport and allegedly stole multiple bags from baggage claim over a three-day period.

Phoenix police report that on September 19, Corey James Wylam and Michelle Christine Bolus, both 27, flew into the airport, collected their bags and two others that belonged to other passengers.

Police say they went to another terminal and stole more bags from the baggage claim carousels.

They allegedly returned to the airport over the next two days taking bags from carousels in Terminal 3 and 4. In total, police say, there are ten victims with the full value of the items stolen estimated to be about $20,000.

Police say surveillance video shows Wylam and Bolus leaving the airport in a rental car. Police used GPS tracking to locate them in north Phoenix, near 40th Street and Bell Road.

Wylam was arrested in the parking lot, while Bolus was found inside a drug treatment center.

Several items from the stolen bags were reportedly located in the suspect’s vehicle.

They have both been charged with burglary.
