YVR security screener enters guilty plea to eight counts of theft


WATCH ABOVE: A security screener working at YVR pleaded guilty to charges of theft today. John Daly has the details.

There is always the risk of being robbed when you’re traveling but generally you wouldn’t think it would happen at the airport and at the hands of airport staff.

A Vancouver International Airport (YVR) security screener Yuriy Ruvinskiy, who is in his 30s, entered a guilty plea to eight counts of theft under $5,000 in a Richmond court today.

The charges were laid following an investigation by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority and RCMP and refer to 26 separate incidents, which took place over a seven-day period from February to March 2014.

A pre-sentence report, which will contain information about the YVR screener and his case, has been ordered.

A sentencing date has not yet been determined.
