American Flight Attendants Arrested, Caught With $22K In Their Suitcases

by Zoe

Four American Airlines flight attendants inbound from Chile were arrested at Miami International Airport last week for bringing thousands of undeclared cash into the US.

Apparently, one of the cabin crew members caught the attention of a customs agent — when he changed his answer about how much cash he was carrying, from $100 to $9000. Oops.

That agent then flagged other agents and three other cabin crew were arrested for money laundering. The total amount of money seized? $22,671.
