Flight Attendant Smuggled Heroin
Customs officers made the discovery Friday afternoon when they began screening passengers and employees exiting a JetBlue flight from Bogota to Orlando International Airport.
According to a federal criminal complaint, Carla Michelle Alvarado told customs officers during a screening that she hid items in a garment under her flight-attendant uniform.
Officers found multiple hard oval pellets that looked like chocolate candy. But they were really about 940 grams — or just over two pounds — of heroin, the criminal complaint said.
