Tampa had a bad time in the 80s when some people sneaked into their warehouses at night (when their security wasn't so good) and put a cocaine package which got to Miami. They changed one of the normal cargo boxes for 450 kilos of cocaine. The plane where that package was found was stopped for three months, Jorge Coulson, Tampa's CEO in that moment had to sue the USA's ambassador in Colombia and even the very USA's customs, because they had left him in a limbo, and were not only getting Tampa into problems, but also were saying he was guilty.
In 1983 the Colombian Customs made an analysis of all the planes operating in Colombia aiming to stop any plane which had any kind of relationship with the Mafia, Tampa's planes had all the papers in order, but between Avianca, Tampa, Aces and the little airlines had like 60 planes with trouble, which meant that almost the whole Colombian air industry had to be stopped, then Tampa had a reunion with the customs to fix all problems they could have in advance, but this remedy proved to be worse than the illness because he had some planes in maintenance whose papers had just expired but he managed to fly them out and in of Colombia twice but then the custom's people said he had failed deliberately to do his duty (regarding papers), and grounded all Tampa's planes but one.
Besides these two incidents, of which Tampa got out clean, they've NEVER had any kind of legal problem, and I honestly don't think they have it now, in fact, Tampa has helped to improve security in US' Airports... here's the story:
In that years I mention, the early 80s, there was no such a thing as a device to help detecting drugs, so Tampa proposed the USA's Customs to accept a deal, stop fighting and better help each other, the customs accepted.
All the demands were retired and Tampa began talks to X-Ray's companies to see if they could make a machine Tampa designed. Tampa proposed the USA's customs to change all the fines for the machines they designed and installed, and so was it, Tampa was the first freighter line to make this kind of security proceedings regarding Aereal cargo transport, which they keep doing and improving.
