The Harris County District Attorney's office has charged five baggage handlers with stealing property from luggage moving through Bush Intercontinental Airport. Tony Whitehurst, Antoine White, Oshton Dounseroux, Jermaine Broadnax and Terrance Anderson all face organized crime charges. Police have arrested all the men except Anderson.

They say the men worked for Air-Serve, a baggage handling company contracted by Continental Airlines. The men are accused of stealing liquor, laptop computers and other electronics, mainly from Hispanic travelers.
