Lei, a young woman from Shanghai, walked out of the airport and hired a taxi to her downtown residence.

About halfway home, the driver received an "urgent call" and told Lei that he would have to drop her off and turn back. He waived her fee, unloaded her luggage and helped her get another taxi.

When she returned home, Lei discovered that her notebook computer had been removed from her luggage and called police.

After a month-long investigation, police determined that the driver had hid somebody in the trunk specifically to steal luggage. Both the driver and the "trunk man" were arrested.
