Air hostess on the run after been caught attempting to smuggle narcotics


A flight attendant has taken to her heels after she attempted to smuggle nearly 70 pounds of narcotics onto a plane, a spokesman for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency said.

Witnesses say that after being pulled aside last week for random screening at Los Angeles International Airport, the female flight attendant took a phone call, kicked off her shoes and ran off, leaving the cocaine-filled luggage behind, according to the union for LAX police officers.

The union says the case is an example of why LAX should screen all people entering the airport, like Miami and Orlando’s international airports do.

“LAX is the top west coast terrorist target and has been the site of airport employees smuggling drugs aboard aircrafts and other criminal activities,” the statement said. “100% screening has the potential to stop an “insider” or “lone wolf” terrorist attack and to help decrease the opportunities for airport employees to commit crimes.
