CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A baggage handler at Charlotte Douglas International Airport accused of stealing from passengers has been arrested Tuesday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said.

Marlow Hayes, 39, is charged with misdemeanor larceny.

Investigators said a passenger who'd checked her luggage on a Frontier Airlines Flight got to Florida and noticed her computer tablet was missing.

She tracked the tablet to a home off West Boulevard. A man told police he bought it from a customer at his barbershop.

Police are investigating a total of seven thefts -- five of which happened while Hayes was working.
