A uniformed JetBlue flight attendant on an off-duty free plane to Puerto Rico was arrested Friday at JFK Airport after her boyfriend allegedly stole an iPhone from another passenger.
Police said Queens couple Stacy-Ann Smith, 27, and her boyfriend Jason McCaulay, 23, were waiting to go through security on their way to Aguadila late Friday night when McCaulay swiped an iPhone 4S left in a bin.
Reporters were unable to reach either of them for comment.
According to police, the device's owner had put the phone in the bin while he passed through the metal detector.
A few minutes later the owner, who had been standing in front of McCaulay, realized his iPhone was missing and told the Transportation Security Adminstration agent who called the Port Authority cops.
Reviewing security footage, authorities saw McCaulay steal the iPhone.
Smith told police that McCaulay panicked when he saw police officers approaching him and slipped the phone into her pocket without her knowing.
McCaulay was taken off to be identified by the phone's owner while Smith went into the restroom.
An officer spotted her and followed her in to confront her, and while she denied knowing anything about the smartphone the officer found the device stashed in a toilet-seat-cover dispenser.
McCaulay then confessed.
