    I think all Airline companies should cancel all flights untill a fence is back up. (Safety & Security reasons). That would get somebody's attention.

    You have been living here for 10 years, you should know:
    These scrap metal gangs steal anything:
    fences, guarding rails, sewage covers, power cables, transformers, crosses from tombs, coffin fittings,...

    But then, last week also an ostrich was stolen (from the Moca zoo).
    So, nothing out of the ordinary really.

    [The experts on Dominican culture can explain more.]

    Did you read the article about jetblue and Air France complaining about luggage theft at Las Americas?

    Honestly, what can you expect out of the general population given that political leadership robs the country blind?

    Code of Ethics starts at the top. You'd think that by now they'd have enough folks who don't need any more money to find one to head up security at the Country's largest airport.

    I don't care how slick the "salvage thieves" are. They can't pull off and airport perimeter heist without inside help. There are security cameras everywhere, roving guards and traffic all hours of the day and night. How hard would it be to track down 1500' of cyclone fence with poles?

    Diogenes would be on suicide watch in the D.R.

    The good side is the ones lugging out the luggage and jewellery do not have to work so hard. It's all about making life easy isn't it?

    I thought the airlines were going to cancel flights because the airport workers steal everything from the bags? Hard to keep track of the goings on at that wacky Las Americas!
