This is the amazing moment when a luggage handler is caught opening a suitcase and stuffing a speaker.
A passenger on a Ryanair flight from Ibiza to Madrid filmed the thief in action before alerting a butler.
The police managed to get the man to confess before returning the stolen item to his owner, a teenager who travels to the Spanish capital with his mother.
It is believed that the baggage handler, who is now facing a trial and had barely begun his work three days before, was fired.

The images of his theft, published by the newspaper of the island Diario de Ibiza, showed him opening the suitcase in a luggage cart.
He is seen rummaging inside with one hand and then pulling out the red speaker that was inside.
The man makes sure to bury the speaker in the left pocket of his pants and closes it to hide his theft.
The extraordinary incident occurred on Friday morning.
The woman who had bought it for her son told Diario de Ibiza: "The police told me it was the third day that the man had been working at the airport and he returned the speaker to me immediately.
"I was very grateful because I had bought it for my son's birthday."
Last summer, a baggage handler at the airport in Ibiza was filmed throwing suitcases at passengers.
He threw a stroller on the asphalt before driving out with a bag trapped under the wheels of his truck.
