Tremblay is due in Richmond provincial court on Wednesday.

Earlier in the spring, Miriam Fajardo, a foreign national, was convicted on three counts of theft under $5,000 for what police described as her part in a luggage theft ring.

Police said at the time that she was believed to be “part of a larger, organized theft group travelling from airport to airport.”
