A security guard has been filmed stealing more than $800 in cash from a passenger's handbag.
CCTV captured Busakorn Sumkwamdee, 26, opening the tourist's bag as it sat in a basket on a conveyor belt just before it went through the X-ray at Suvarnabhumi Airport, in Bangkok, Thailand on Monday.
The guard then removes a large bundle of notes and slips them into her right pocket despite a passenger standing next to her.
The Chinese passenger later contacted airport bosses when she noticed the missing money while in the departure lounge at Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Police arrested Somkwamdee who was caught red-handed with 4000 Chinese yuan. The employee, who had worked at the airport for two years, was interviewed by police and suspended after she admitted the theft.
Airport deputy director Kittipong Kittikajorn said the security guard admitted the theft but claimed it was the first time she had stolen.

'Airport officials are reviewing CCTV to check if the staff member has stolen from other passengers," Kittikajorn said.
"We believe that there could be other thefts because she carried out this one very professionally. She was quick with her hands and knew how to avoid CCTV cameras. All the evidence will be gathered and she will be prosecuted.*
