A federal grant jury in the District of Puerto Rico indicted twelve TSA suspects, charged with conspiracy to “possess with the intent to distribute” cocaine from Puerto Rico to the mainland USA.
During the course of the conspiracy, the defendants smuggled suitcases filled with cocaine, throught the TSA security system @ the Luis Munoz Marin International Airport. Sometimes as many as “5 mules” were used, checking in two suitcases on each flight to the USA, from 1998 through 2016.
These individuals were involved in a conspiracy to traffic massive quantaties of illegal narcotics to the continental USA..
The Transporatation Security Agency (TSA) & Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) are in charge of the investigation in coordination with Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), working out details with US Marshals and the Police of Puerto Rico.
If convicted the defendants face a minimum sentence of ten years up to life in prison. However, for now, the indictments contain only charges and are not evidence of guilt. For now the defendants are presumed to be innocent untill and unless proven guilty.
