Marsha Gay Reynolds

A JetBlue flight attendant, who is accused of leaving behind some 70 pounds of cocaine after Transportation Security Administration officers at Los Angeles International Airport pulled her aside for a search after deeming her suspicious while she talked on a cellphone, has surrendered to federal drug agents in New York City, KTLA reports.


According to KTLA, on Friday the officers took Marsha Gay Reynolds, 31, to a secondary-screening area, where she was asked for her employee identification. Reynolds suddenly grabbed her bags and bolted from the room and down a nearby escalator, authorities say. According to the report, she dropped the bags while running and even ran out of her Gucci shoes while fleeing the airport. Officers retrieved her two carry-on roller bags, which held around 70 pounds of cocaine, authorities told the news station.

Police officials told the news station that the incident was captured on video, but the video was not released to news media. Reynolds, who reportedly surrendered at John F. Kennedy International Airport, faces felony drug charges, the news station reports.

It's no wonder Reynolds may have been able to outrun police as she is accused: She was reportedly a sprinter for the New York University track team in 2004, according to Heavy.
