Flight Attendant's Stolen Money Flushed Down The Toilet

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON -- Massachusetts State Police say they have arrested a man returning from a vacation in Iceland after he allegedly stole $300 from a flight attendant's purse while the plane was in flight over Greenland.

Police met Iceland Air Flight 631 as it arrived at Logan International Airport about 5 p.m. Sunday, and arrested Torry Johnson of Gloucester (GLAH'-stur), Mass. He is accused of taking the money and some foreign currency from the attendant's purse.

Police say when the flight crew confronted Johnson, he returned the foreign currency but then locked himself in the plane's bathroom, where police believe he flushed the cash down the commode.

Johnson was released from police custody Sunday evening. He is to be arraigned Monday. A phone number for Johnson could not immediately be found.
