Airport employee and Florida man charged with cocaine trafficking through Orlando Int’l Airport

An airline employee and passenger appeared in court after being charged for attempting to traffic cocaine through an airport in the U.S. Virgin Islands to Orlando, Florida.

The passenger’s backpack was seized after a drug dog alerted officers to the illicit contents.

The 2.25 kilograms of cocaine were wrapped up with tape and resembled two bricks.

The contents were tested on-site, and the two men now face up to 2 decades in federal prison.
