USA, New Orleans: Drug smuggling ring leads to Armstrong airport arrests.
Federal investigators have uncovered what they say is a massive marijuana drug smuggling ring using airline baggage handlers at airports across the country. Federal and local law enforcement records show the investigation stretches all the away to the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport where at least two alleged smugglers were caught red-handed. The feds are calling it "a criminal conspiracy," a multi-state drug smuggling ring based out of the San Francisco Bay area that made its way more than 1,000 miles to Louisiana. Federal investigators say Southwest baggage handlers are responsible for smuggling hundreds of pounds of marijuana past security and onto planes. A total of 14 people in three states are being charged by federal investigators. Two of those men were arrested here at home. Court documents show the alleged drug operations at Armstrong airport date back to October 2013 through June 2014.
