Flight attendant in drug arrest

03sep05

A SOUTH African flight attendant has been caught allegedly trying to smuggle cocaine into Australia in a document folder at Perth International Airport.

The 26-year-old South African Airways steward was stopped by Customs on Thursday coming off a flight from Johannesburg.

A baggage search revealed he was carrying a leather-bound document holder which appeared to have a concealment on either side.

Inside the secret compartments customs officers allegedly found an estimated 1kg of cocaine.

Mate - Australia, like the rest of the world, is not immune to people such as this one who try to abuse (and fortunately get caught) their position and privileges and hence make the lives of every cabin crew out there "more difficult", with the added and now more stringent searches and checks.

Glad they busted him!

All that trouble for a lousy key... a kilo of cocaine is not worth that much money on the street, so you've got to be really stupid to try to transport that.

This isn't the 70's anymore, and your name is not George Jung... LOL

I think this is the case everywhere in the world! Why the heck should air crews enter a country without clearing customs?

Well, next time he should try it at FRA, there you can hardly see customs controls when you arrive from wherever.

Nice job Australian Customs! Surely people must know by now that all baggage (including hand baggage) is x-rayed coming into aus. My hiking boots always get nabbed even though they're very clean.

This fella will probably claim that it was planted in his document folder by some elaborate baggage handler drug ring in SA...

A kilo of coke has a street value in the UK of between £4000 and £5000, if sold gram by gram.

True, and you could possibly make more if you cut it a lot, but I still don't see the point of a flight attendant, who may stay in AUS for a day at the most, bringing in a key to try to sell.

Oh well... I'm sure he has some good excuse as to why he tried...
