This was a male flight attendant of Cebu Pacific Air Flight 5J52 from Boracay to Mainland China early this week. He allegedly stole the money of several passengers on board and was was caught red handed by the passengers. 

Although he was able to flush dozens of pieces of RMB¥100 bills down the toilet, airport policemen were still able to recover damp RMB bills from the garbage bin in the lavatory. 

The whole crew were said to have conspired to committing the crime because other flight attendants and the air marshall were covering the suspect when he rushed to the toilet trying to destroy all evidences. 

The crew started to look suspicious when they insisted that the window shields must be pulled down all the time and even small sling bags were required to be stored in overhead bin while much bigger school bags of children were exempted. 

The handwritten Chinese letter was the testimony of the passengers.

As of writing, this has been shared 1,867 times and liked by 600 Facebook users.

Counsel Mantaring said, “As part of standard procedure, cabin crew members of the said flight will be placed on paid leave and a non-flying status, pending the completion of the investigation.”
