Runner-up in Miss Jamaica Universe Pageant found with 70 pounds of cocaine
The flight attendant who dropped two suitcases full of cocaine at Los Angeles International Airport — along with her Gucci shoes — before fleeing in panic turned herself in to authorities in New York on Wednesday, sources said.
Marsha Gay Reynolds was arrested by Drug Enforcement Administration agents, sources said.
The JetBlue flight attendant, a former beauty pageant contestant, was randomly stopped last Friday at a checkpoint for airline workers. She kicked off her Gucci heels, dropped the drugs and bolted, according to sources.
She then boarded a flight to New York and went to her Queens apartment before holing up in the Hilton Hotel near JFK Airport, the sources said.
The nearly 70 pounds of cocaine found stashed in her suitcases was estimated to be worth $2 million.
She was also a runner-up in the 2007 Miss Jamaica Universe pageant, according to the Jamaica Gleaner.
