A flight attendant who dropped two suitcases full of cocaine at Los Angeles International Airport before fleeing in a panic turned herself into authorities in New York on Wednesday, sources said.
Marsha Gay Reynolds was arrested by Drug Enforcement Agents in New York after Friday’s melee in Los Angeles where she was randomly stopped at a checkpoint for airline workers and kicked off her Gucci shoes, dropped the drugs, and bolted, according to the sources.
“She kicked her high heels off and left her shoes and bag behind,” said Marshall McClain of the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association.
“She knew if she dropped both of them, she’d be able to run away more quickly,” he explained.
“She was then able to high-foot it out of the terminal, down an up escalator while barefoot, where we assume she got into a car and took off to parts unknown.”
In her bags, TSA agents found clothes, Trojan Magnum condoms and 68.49 pounds of cocaine wrapped in green saran wrap and labeled “BIG Ranch,” cops said.
But because TSA agents did not get her name, Reynolds may have been able to board her red eye flight to LaGuardia on Friday night.
After being apprehended in New York, she was charged in a criminal complaint filed in Los Angeles Wednesday.
