3 airline workers accused of trying to smuggle $500,000-plus in heroin, meth into US on a jet
By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) ' Three airport workers are accused of trying to bring heroin and methamphetamine into the U.S. on a commercial jet.

U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said Thursday that the workers are charged with conspiring to smuggle more than $500,000 worth of drugs into the country on a Delta Air Lines flight from Mexico.

Federal authorities say the case involves Delta Flight 364, which arrived at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport from Mexico City on Jan. 13.

Prosecutors say investigators zeroed in on the airline workers after heroin and meth were found in an unclaimed bag on a carousel.

The three suspects are: 35-year-old Luis Marroquin of Atlanta; 41-year-old Carlos Springer of Hampton; and 27-year-old Kelvin Rondon of Atlanta. It wasn't known Thursday whether they have attorneys representing.
