Jesse Joseph Repetti, Airline Employee, Charged With Trying To Steal Booze, Chips From Plane

A 28-year-old airline employee was charged with theft after trying to pilfer mini-bottles of booze and potato chips from a parked plane at Milwaulkee's General Mitchell International Airport, according to authorities and the Oak Creek, Wisc. Patch.

Jesse Joseph Repetti, who works for PrimeFlight, an airport service company, was charged on December 30 with theft of movable property, a misdemeanor, after allegedly trying to steal bottles of booze from a parked AirTran jet. Sheriff's deputies say they found Repetti eating a bag of AirTran-branded potato chips and in possession of a haul from the beverage cart.

Court papers say the alleged beverage cart bandit had "two bottles of wine, three bottles of Jack Daniel's, three bottles of Bacardi, one can of Bud Light, two bags of chips and two bags of pretzels that were all stolen from the plane," reports Patch.

He was also carrying loose Oxycodone pills, though Repetti told officers he has a prescription for the painkillers.

A pre-trial conference is scheduled for January 11.
