LOS ANGELES (AP) — A JetBlue flight attendant accused of trying to sneak a suitcase full of cocaine through Los Angeles International Airport has pleaded not guilty to a federal charge.
City News Service says Marsha Gay Reynolds entered the plea Friday to possessing cocaine with intent to distribute.
Authorities say during a random security screening at LAX in March, the former Jamaican beauty queen left her carry-on luggage, kicked off her Gucci high heels and bolted down an upward-moving escalator.
Authorities found about 70 pounds of cocaine in her luggage.
Reynolds, who lives in Queens, later surrendered in New York.
