The investigation called, "Operation Excess Baggage,” began in January
2010 when HSI special agents from the ICE’s attaché office in Kingston,
Jamaica, contacted Detroit-based HSI special agents to alert them of a
seizure by Jamaican Customs of approximately 53 pounds of marijuana.
HSI special agents in Detroit immediately notified U.S. Customs and
Border Protection (CBP) officers at DTW. HSI agents, along with CBP
officers, seized an additional five suitcases containing nearly 16
kilograms of cocaine and close to 130 kilograms of marijuana.
Preliminary investigative findings suggested internal involvement of
employees of Delta/Northwest.
I know of some things in the past at Delta/CVG.....
There was a dumpster sitting right next to the fence of Terminal 3.......
Did they catch the bastard that stole my Senor Frogs hat out of my bag at Dulles?
Good lord, if I weren't a good citizen, the amount of drugs/cash/illegal immigrants I could smuggle on a commercial airliner/freighter is just astonishing. Customs, Agriculture, ICE; even with the dogs, they never searched more than 10% of the airplane. We even had between 3-7 flights a week to Bogota...
I know I feel safer.
