Flight attendants told investigators that they had noticed Radio acting suspicious on board the flight, saying he “repeatedly walked up and down the airplane aisle and had been seated for a period of time in a seat that was not assigned to him,” WSVN reported.

“We don’t give enough credit to the crew,” Jessica Maqueda told WSVN. “And they do an amazing job, you know, with any assistance we may need, and I’m glad they were vigilant and noticed that something was odd.”

Investigators told WTVJ that Radio confessed to stealing the cards and cash from passengers on the flight.
