Taken off plane for petty theft

Tugrul Erdal was in the departure lounge of Ercan Airport on Thursday afternoon (20th December) waiting to board the flight to Ankara. In the departure waiting area, he saw a pair of sunglasses on the floor and picked them up, taking them with him.

Unfortunately for him, he was observed by Edil Tuncel, the owner of the sunglasses, who notified the police.

The 55 year old Mr Erdal was arrested on the plane that was about to set off and removed from the aircraft. He has since appeared in court and confessed to the theft. He is now on bail and cannot leave the TRNC until the police have concluded their investigations – whatever those may be.
