Marsha Gay Reynolds, a former contestant in the Miss Jaimaica beauty contest and current Jet Blue flight attendant, turned herself in on Wednesday to face federal drug charges after she was accused of trying to sneak $3 million worth of cocaine through airport security at the Los Angeles International Airport.

According to authorities, after she was selected for a random search 70 pounds of cocaine was found in her luggage. In response to the discovery, Reynolds panicked, took off her shoes and tried to flee barefoot down an upward-moving escalator.

Reynolds’ spokesman Allan Jennings said that it was possible Reynolds did not know what she was carrying: “She may not have been fully aware of what was in the bags.”

However, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alicia Washington claimed that this was “not the only time the defendant has engaged in this conduct.”

Her bail has been set for $500,000 and the judge has warned that if she flees again, her family’s homes may be repossessed.
