TULSA, Okla. -- American Airlines workers found 24 pounds of cocaine stashed in a cargo area of an airplane undergoing maintenance Tuesday, U.S. Customs Department officials said.
The aircraft's last flight before being brought to Tulsa was from Montego Bay, Jamaica, to Kennedy International Airport in New York, Turner said.
Drugs and Jamaica:
While at the Double A, every other day, I’d come to work and the daily memo was Please See N* “KIN DRUG INCIDENT” or “MBJ DRUG INCIDENT”
Or see “JFK/MIA DRUG INCIDENT” and it mentioned some flight originating in KIN or MBJ. (the above are references in Sabre to descriptions of pax caught w/ narcotics)
I went to Runaway Bay, Jamaica in June 2001 for my brother’s wedding. Every time I turned around, some guy named Nigel was like “You need green stuff?” or "How much you pay for white stuff?”
I know Houston, the remainder of Texas, and the entire US had a large drug problem, but Drugs must be Jamaica’s number one export…
