Flight Attendant Drops 70 lbs of cocaine at Airport

A Jet Blue flight attendant dropped a bag that contained almost 70 pounds of cocaine at Los Angles International Airport.  She was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute.  She was randomly selected for security screening at LA airport that day.  The flight attendant was carrying two carry ons and a large purse.  Before the screening began she made a phone a call and talked in a foreign language.  Then she dropped her luggage and took off shoes and began to sprint out of the terminal.  TSA workers did not pursue her in order to secure the luggage.  Her luggage eleven packages of cocaine weighing 68.5 lbs.  She surrendered to Federal Agents Wednesday in New York City.  Jet Blue has not immediately responded to a request to comment.
