An aviation security supervisor was sentenced to two months in prison for theft at Tsuen Wan court yesterday. Lau Kok-kwong, 36, was at the screening checkpoint of a transfer desk on July 25 last year. While inspecting the luggage of a passenger travelling from Ho Chi Minh to Los Angeles via Hong Kong, he stole US$1,000 (HK$7,757) cash. The passenger complained to the Airport Authority who found that Lau's act had been caught on a surveillance camera.
