An airline employee was caught trying to smuggle about $160,000 worth of cocaine through New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Hugh Hall, a Fly Jamaica Airways employee, went through security inspection at JFK Airport on March 17. That’s when U.S. Customs and Border Protection discovered four packages containing white powder taped to his legs.
The powder later tested positive for cocaine.
Officials said the packages weighed nearly nine pounds in total and that the cocaine had a street value of about $160,000.
Hall faces federal narcotics smuggling charges.
