USA, San Diego: Airport workers get prison for smuggling drugs.

Four baggage handlers who admitted helping smuggle drugs aboard commercial flights out of Lindbergh Field have been sentenced to prison. The scheme took advantage of the handlers’ security badges and their ability to gain access to a secure area within San Diego International Airport without having to undergo security checks. The handlers worked for Delta Global Services, which provides ground services for several airlines. They would bring loads of several kilograms of cocaine and methamphetamine into the airport, then pass the drugs through bathroom stalls to couriers, according to the plea agreements. The couriers then flew to various U.S. cities — including New York, Honolulu, Philadelphia and Nashville — as ticketed passengers. Investigators intercepted at least two drug loads after the couriers had landed in other airports. A total of 11 people total were indicted in the scheme.  More information here:
