On Feb 16, 2011 the customofficers at Margarita Airport tried to pick my pockets!
What happened was this. Just before being admitted to the departure lounge there is a final check. One customsofficer asked for my passport and started a conversation. Another customsofficer started frisking me, patting my body. And that very moment, I noticed this just in time, a third officer had his paws in my pocket and already has his hands on my money. I acted in disbelief and anger and this "person" immediately stepped away.
I think all three of them were in on it.
By the way: I had one of my best times ever on Margarita this year, except for the incident at the airport.
