Baggage claim: Two men charged with stealing $550,000 from airlines in lost-luggage scam

Pernell Anthony Jones Jr., 31, of Kenner, La., and Donmonick Martin, 29, of Chalmette, La., are accused of running the scam on numerous airlines, filing lost-luggage claims following 180 flights in and out of Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans, despite never actually traveling with checked bags, according to court documents. A representative for Southwest had no comment, and messages sent to the other airlines weren’t immediately returned.
