Las Vegas police are investigating a group of McCarran Airport workers accused of stealing items from travelers and then selling them at pawn shops.

Among the stolen items were a gun, ammunition and luxury items.

Police released an arrest report that shows at least two workers of a third party company are in custody in connection with the crime. One of the arrested workers is 19 years old.
