UPDATE: Former Miss Jamaica contestant faces federal charges in 70-pound cocaine case

UPDATE: Former Miss Jamaica contestant faces federal charges in 70-pound cocaine case

The JetBlue flight attendant and former Miss Jamaica World contestant, Marsha Gay Reynolds, is reportedly facing federal charges after allegedly trying to smuggle nearly 70 pounds of cocaine with a reported street value of $3 million in her carry-on luggage at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) last week.

Reynolds appeared in court in Brooklyn on Thursday (March 24), and was released on $500,000 bond, which was cosigned by her parents, church pastor, and a church friend. The judge, however, put the order on hold until Friday to allow a judge in California, where she would face trial, to have a say in the matter. Prosecutors also said in court they were searching for an unidentified co-conspirator involved in the case, while a spokesman for the family reportedly told reporters there was “more to the story” and that additional facts would emerge as the case proceeded.

Reports are that Reynolds, 31, of Jamaica, New York, was chosen for a secondary security screening at the airport after flashing her flight attendant badge. The agents who dealt with her at the airport  say that the former beauty queen and track star then “became nervous and began looking around” while in line. She is also reported to have made a call on her cell phone “talking in a foreign language”. (Was it Jamaican patois?)

Ms Reynolds allegedly dropped her bags, kicked off her expensive Gucci heels and made a run for it. She reportedly ran out of the airport downwards on a set of escalators going upwards. In a report, the agent said he didn’t pursue her, as his main concern were the bags, which Reynolds left behind when she fled.

TSA reportedly discovered 68.49 pounds of cocaine in individually wrapped packages inside of her luggage.

After five days, Reynolds, who reportedly was able to use her airline identification to board a flight from Los Angeles after the incidentet  turned herself over to police.  On Wednesday, she went in voluntarily to federal agents  at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

A spokesman for the family reportedly told reporters there was “more to the story” and that additional facts would emerge as the case proceeded. JetBlue representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Prosecutors said she has worked for the airline for six years.

Organisers of the Miss Jamaica beauty contest in Jamaica have distanced themselves from Reynolds, who  has been suspended from her Jet Blue job due to the incident.
