Jamaican beauty queen pleads not guilty on drugs rap; prosecutors say Jet Blue worker had drugs links

The drama surrounding former Jamaican beauty queen and Jet Blue flight attendant, Marsha Reynolds intensifies. In March, Reynolds shot to notoriety when she ditched her Gucci heels and proceeded to run down an upward-moving escalator in a US airport after she was hauled over for a random bag check.
Reynolds, a runner-up for Miss Jamaica World pageant in 2008, was subsequently accused of trying to sneak a suitcase with nearly 70 pounds of cocaine, worth an estimated US$3 million (J$367m)through Los Angeles International Airport. She has pleaded not guilty to a federal charge.

Marsha-Gaye Reynolds – Jet Blue flight attendant on cocaine charge pleads not guilty

According to a report by City News Service, Marsha Gay Reynolds entered the not guilty plea Friday to possessing cocaine with intent to distribute.
However, United States prosecutors have linked Reynolds to people whose money is thought to be proceeds of drug trafficking. According to one website which has had access to the court documents, the United States government said it has provided Reynolds’ lawyers with the names of three persons on her “companion list at Jet Blue who have criminal histories with at least one drug offence”.
The court documents also said two others who are part of Reynolds’ companion list were intercepted at the airport carrying thousands of dollars in cash, one with more than US$100,000 (J$12.26m).
In the court documents supplied by the United States Attorney’s Office, Central District of California, Los Angeles, one of Reynolds’ friends, who is now a key prosecution witness, said she was asked to help to carry the bags with the drugs through security, using her access badge, in order to avoid baggage fees.
Reynolds had hurriedly arranged a meeting with her friend, a US homeland security and custom officer, three days after she reportedly ran from the airport leaving the drug behind. The friend then provided the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the DEA of details of his meeting with Reynolds, which took place at a restaurant.
According to the informant in whom she confided, Reynolds told him to make sure that one of the two men she was assisting to smuggle the suitcases, does not leave the US. It was the same man who allegedly told Reynolds to run out of the airport; not to cooperate with authorities and to go to Jamaica after the incident to avoid law enforcement authorities.
Court documents also indicate that the witness who has been assisting the government, said Reynolds’ boyfriend is believed to have come from a wealthy family and was a restaurant owner and engineer in Jamaica.
Reynolds, who lives in Queens, faces a minimum 10 years in prison if found guilty.
