Man Indicted in Identity Theft at Lambert Airport

By AP/KWMU

St. Louis, MO – A man has been charged with stealing credit card numbers and about $200,000 from those accounts.

The indictment accuses Dominique Bourne got the card numbers from computerized passenger records from a company at Lambert Airport called Airport Terminal Services.

It's not clear why that company, which provides aircraft-maintenance services at Lambert, had such passenger data.

Using the credit card numbers, authorities say Bourne and unnamed co-conspirators made charges to three bogus companies they set up.

An ATS spokesman told the Post-Dispatch only that Bourne was not an employee.
