Feds Nab Third Man Suspected In Airport Drug Plot
ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Federal authorities have arrested the third Atlanta airport worker suspected of plotting to smuggle a bag filled with heroin and methamphetamines into the U.S.
Authorities say in court records that Luis Marroquin was arrested early Tuesday at a house in Coral Springs, Fla. Prosecutors also charged his girlfriend, Stephanie Baxter, with helping him try to escape the country and flee to Guatemala.
Two other Delta Air Lines workers, Carlos Springer and Kelvin Rondon, were arrested last week and charged with conspiring to smuggle more than $500,000 worth of drugs into the country on a Delta flight in January from Mexico City.
Springer pleaded not guilty at a hearing this week and his bond was set at $150,000. Attorneys for the other three defendants could not immediately be identified.
