Man and boy charged with security breach after Canberra Airport baggage carousel stunt filmed

A man has been accused of breaching Canberra Airport security by encouraging a child to go into a restricted area via the baggage carousel.

Security camera footage shows the 58-year-old man filming the 14-year-old boy stepping on the baggage carousel at the airport on July 2, Australian Federal Police (AFP) have alleged.

The boy is taken a short distance by the carousel into a secure area while the man continues to film, according to the AFP.

When the duo returned to Canberra Airport on Sunday for their flight back to Queensland, officers pounced on them.

The AFP said officers seized a phone that allegedly had footage of the boy riding the carousel.

They charged the man and boy with “entering a security-restricted area at a designated airport through access control points”.

“Airport security is no joke and restrictions exist to ensure the safety and security of the travelling public and workers,” Detective Acting Inspector Jon Horrocks said in a statement.

“Canberra Airport Group, the AFP and industry partners take any security breaches at airports seriously and people can be prosecuted if they commit a criminal offence.”
