Homeless man sought after cash grab at Paris airport

A homeless man found a huge amount of money at Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris and was able to leave the complex with about 300,000 euro (£264,000), French police say.

Two police officers said that video surveillance from last week showed the man looking in a rubbish bin and then leaning against a nearby door.

Airport police union official Jean-Yann William Airport told France Info television that "to his surprise, the door is opening, he's entering and finds out there's a huge amount of money" in the room of cash transport company Loomis.

Video then shows the man leaving the airport with two big bags.

Police recognised him as a homeless man living in the airport area.

He is being actively sought.
