USA: Delta worker caught smuggling $282K past security in Florida.
A 26-year-old former ramp agent at Palm Beach International Airport pleaded guilty Tuesday to illegally trying to help unknown men get a quarter of a million dollars through security and onto a plane in March.
Jean Yves Selius, of Boynton Beach, pleaded guilty to a charge of unlawful money transmitting in connection with his illicit work. He faces a maximum five-year prison term when he is sentenced by U.S. District Judge Kenneth Marra on Oct. 28. He could get far less if he helps federal prosecutors identify others involved, according to his plea agreement.
Selius, who worked for Delta Air Lines, was arrested after Homeland Security agents discovered $282,300 in a backpack he was carrying, according to court reports. Agents inspected the backpack after Selius used his airport clearance card to bypass security checkpoints, agents said. A drug dog alerted agents that drugs were in the backpack although none were found.
