BARCELONA - A contortionist thief hid inside a suitcase to raid the baggage on a Spanish airport bus, El Periodico newspaper reported Wednesday, citing regional police.

Officers, alerted to a series of thefts on the service between Girona airport and Barcelona in northeastern Spain, said the man's accomplice would zip him inside the bag, load it into the baggage compartment, and then board the bus.

During the 90 minute journey, the flexible felon would emerge, squirm around the hold, rifle through the bags of his more conventional fellow passengers looking for their valuables and then get back inside his suitcase. The haul included laptops and a GPS unit.

One victim became suspicious when she saw the apparently anxious accomplice rushing to retrieve his suitcase, and then proceed to have a conversation with it.
