As reported by the Miami New Times, the guards were arrested after police reviewed footage showing one of the suspects taking an iPad from a passenger's bag after it was X-rayed and placing it into the rear of his pants underneath his shirt. The police discovered the footage during an investigation after a Carnival Victory passenger reported her iPad was missing when her bags were delivered to her ship cabin.
Police arrested the two guards during a sting in which they arranged to purchase two iPads the suspects had listed for sale on Craigslist. The Victory passenger's iPad was recovered, as was an iPod Touch that a cruise passenger reported stolen in February.
