(AP) Seven men who worked as contract baggage handlers for El Al Airlines in New York have been charged with stealing iPads, iPhones, cash and jewelry from passengers' luggage.


Queens District Attorney Richard Brown says Friday the Israeli airline installed a video camera in a baggage hold from April 1 to Wednesday after customers complained about missing items.


Prosecutors say the video shows defendants stuffing jewelry, cash, watches, computers and other items in their pockets and down their pants.


Authorities say thousands of dollars' worth of stolen goods were found in their homes and cars.


Investigators say they went to one suspect's home and recovered bottles of cologne, Valentino sunglasses, a Sony Playstation and 14 watches, including one worth $5,000.


Cameras and a Cartier watch were discovered at another defendant's home.
