A San Francisco International Airport baggage handler is facing charges that he stole items from passengers' bags.
 
Prosecutors say 45-year-old George Reyes, who works for United Airlines, was found with iPads and purses when he was arrested on Tuesday. The items had been fitted with GPS trackers as part of a police sting.

  Reyes, of San Francisco, appeared in court the next day on embezzlement and stolen property charges. He did not enter a plea and was granted time to retain a private attorney.
 
He was released on $50,000 bail.
 
San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says investigators found additional stolen items at Reyes' home. He says Reyes victimized at least 50 people.
 
He is due back in court on June 5.
