Taxi driver guilty of stealing John Legend’s luggage

Taxi driver guilty of stealing John Legend’s luggage. A taxi driver who stole John Legend’s luggage from New York’s JFK Airport in March 2017 has been found guilty and will be sentenced in court next month. The theft took place at New York’s JFK Airport in March 2017 with the ‘All of Me‘ singer reporting that his Louis Vuitton travel bag had been taken from an unattended cart. Legend, 39, also took to Twitter at the time to reveal that his bag had been stolen which included several expensive items, including a pair of $30,000 Cartier panther shaped diamond-studded cufflinks and a $500 pair of sunglasses, as well as designer clothes. Luckily for the singer, airport police saw the events unfold on the CCTV cameras around the area and managed to catch the culprit. Queens cab driver Agustin Hilario had claimed that he took the bag accidentally, but surveillance footage analysed by Port Authority Police showed him wheeling the cart to a secluded area of the airport before grabbing the bag and fleeing. Following a week-long trial – which included a testimony from Legend earlier this month – Hilario was found guilty by a jury of criminal possession of stolen property and now faces up to seven years in prison when he’s sentenced on March 12. In his testimony, Legend had told the court that the cufflinks had a lot of sentimental value to him because they had been a gift from his model wife Chrissy Teigen and the panther design was inspired by his high school mascot. He said: “It was a very special gift that my wife spent a lot of time looking for and was proud to give them to me. It meant a lot to her, and it meant a lot to me that she went through that to gift them to me.”
