Flight attendant accused of leaving behind cocaine stash arrested in NY

LOS ANGELES

A flight attendant who ran from Los Angeles International Airport moments before a search turned up 66 pounds (30 kg) of cocaine in her luggage surrendered to authorities in New York on Wednesday, law enforcement officials said.

The suspect, who was not identified by name, was charged in a criminal complaint filed in Los Angeles, said Special Agent Timothy Massino of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Massino declined to release further information about the case, citing an ongoing investigation.

NBC News reported on its website that the woman escaped from the airport on foot after making a nervous phone call in a language not recognized by officers, leaving behind a pair of designer shoes.

1. Better to surrender to authorities than have the dealers get ahold of her.

Nice escape though.

JetBlue attendant who dropped 70 pounds of cocaine nabbed in New York

NEW YORK | BY JOSEPH AX

A JetBlue flight attendant will appear in federal court in New York on Thursday, six days after authorities say she dropped a bag containing almost 70 pounds (32 kg) of cocaine at Los Angeles International Airport, took off her shoes and ran away.

Marsha Reynolds, 31, of Queens, a New York borough, was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.

10. Figures. I'll be flying jetBlue in a couple of months.

 

Looks like I'm gonna have to settle for their signature Terra blue chips.

12. Gucci, apparently

LOL

Reynolds went to a secondary screening area but quickly dropped her bag, ditched a pair of Gucci heels and fled barefoot downward on an upward-moving escalator, Marshall McClain, president of the union representing LAX airport police officers, said Monday.
