    Four adults, using two boys to help them, have been accused of trying to steal bags from a carousel at Portland International Airport.

    A victim spotted what looked like a family stealing bags Saturday morning, according to a Port of Portland police report.

    The victim watched the thieves and directed police to the airport MAX station. The suspects had already boarded, and were cuffed and removed the the train.
    The name of the victim was not released.

    Further investigation determined that the suspects were involved in several other bag thefts. In addition to the arrest accusations, the suspects have been excluded from the airport for 90 days.

    Brian Craig Mottaz and Nancy Marie Mottaz, both 44, were each accused of two counts of first-degree theft, conspiracy to commit theft, and endangering the welfare of a minor.

    Not sure why this would make the papers. You know how often bags are stolen off carousels at airports?

    It's a TV station's local news report. You could ask that question for pretty much 90% of the stuff I see on local TV "news".
