If you spotted a barefoot woman running for her life in LAX, here’s the reason why. A flight attendant dipped out on 69 pounds of cocaine, and Gucci heels, after she was pulled aside by the TSA for a random baggage check.
Reports the Washington Post:
Federal authorities are searching for a flight attendant they say bolted from a security screening at Los Angeles International Airport, leaving behind about 70 pounds of cocaine stashed in her luggage.
Transportation Security Administration officers stopped the woman at random Friday, and she remained at large Monday, said Special Agent Timothy Massino with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
The flight attendant was sent to a secondary screening area, but she quickly dropped her bag, ditched a pair of Gucci heels and fled barefoot downward in an upward-moving escalator, said Marshall McClain, president of the union representing LAX airport police officers.
Police were called to investigate an unattended bag and later uncovered 69 pounds of cocaine inside, McClain said.
No word on whether or not she’s a Plies plan or if this is the second time she got caught transporting that yayo.
Needless to say, she’s probably not calling the plug back at this moment in time.
Yes, we had entirely too fun writing this story.
