An Airline Worker From Texas Has Pleaded Guilty to Drug Smuggling

A flight attendant from Texas pleaded guilty in California to drug trafficking. He faces up to 20 years in prison.

According to a plea agreement, Terese White, 41, admitted that she tried to smuggle Fentanyl into an airplane from San Diego to Boston in October.

White tried to bypass security procedures by using the "known crew member queue" at the airport. However, when she was going through the regular screening process, the TSA officials discovered that she had three pounds of Fentanyl taped to her abdomen.

According to the TSA, White claimed that the drugs were "not what you think" but were actually a "mercury pack" that she received from a co-worker for weight loss.

The use of Fentanyl has reportedly increased significantly in the US. In 2021, over 100,000 people died due to drug overdoses. More than 2.6 million children were raised by relatives affected by the opioid epidemic.

The Drug Enforcement Administration noted that drug trafficking organizations use land, air, and sea for their personal gain. In a press release, the agency's special agent in charge stated that they will continue working with their partners to bring these individuals to justice.

White is scheduled to be sentenced on March 24, 2023, before Judge Cathy Bencivengo.
