(USA, St Louis): American Airline employees accused of smuggling drugs to St. Louis in airline baggage.

An employee of American Airlines Cargo Fleet Service and two others smuggled methamphetamines and cocaine to St. Louis in airline luggage, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. Between February and May, Chalamar Schultz Tuipelehake, 36, arranged for dealers in California to ship their drugs via Poe Purcell, 40, a clerk for the cargo service at Los Angeles International Airport, prosecutors said. Purcell, who had worked for the cargo service since 2001, helped the drug dealers avoid detection, they said.  More information available here:
