A 79-year-old former Delta Air Lines flight attendant is suing the airline after being fired over accusations that she swiped a carton of milk and other on-flight goods.

Ida Gomez Llanos, who worked for the company for 57 years, claims she was the victim of a smear campaign orchestrated by envious colleagues who wanted her gone because of her seniority and whopping $250,000 salary. 

The lawsuit, filed this month in a Los Angeles court, claims she was “harassed” and “bullied,” and that the spreading of lies led to her being penalized and eventually terminated. 

“I couldn’t believe it,” Llanos told the Daily Mail. “I’ve been accused of so many things and none were true. I try not to take it personally, but when you get mean about me and start lying, that is a problem.”

Drug Cartels Muscle Into Mexican Town Packed With Americans

San Miguel de Allende oozes old Mexico charm.

There are the cobblestone streets, the colonial-era buildings and wrought-iron balconies, the neo-Gothic steeples soaring high above the pink-sandstone church anchoring a corner of the main plaza. Travel and Leisure magazine has twice named it the best city in the world, a ratification of how beloved it is with tourists and retirees from the U.S., Canada and beyond.

But lately, San Miguel has been attracting a very different sort of crowd: the drug cartels. And the moment they arrived and began pushing cocaine and imposing their brutal brand of property tax, the murders began.

A restaurateur died in a hail of gunfire in front of horrified customers after he refused to pay extortion demands. The son of the owner of a construction-materials business was killed on his way to work.  A tortilla shop owner in the nearby town of Celaya was gunned down along with two of her employees. And a fruit vendor, a convenience store operator, another restaurateur and three cantina owners closed their doors after shakedown-visits and, it would appear, are lying low.

16-year-old jumps off plane in Oklahoma City as he tries to avoid arrest by police

VRBO

MARK OSBORNE, ABC News

Police at Will Rogers Airport in Oklahoma caught up with a teen wanted on a felony warrant Monday afternoon — they just had to chase him across the runway to do so.

According to the airport, when United flight 5706 landed in Oklahoma City at about 1:45 p.m. local time, a 16-year-old passenger on the flight from Houston ended up jumping off the plane to avoid arrest.

“He has a felony warrant out of Cleveland County, OK and was going to be picked up from the airport by deputies,” Will Rogers Airport said in a statement. “Apparently he knew he was going to be picked up and when getting off the plane, he jumped from the plane down to the tarmac and a foot chase by airline, airport and law enforcement took place.”

He was then taken into custody by Will Rogers police.

Jeff Smiley III was arrested on Nov. 6 after the Norwegian cruise vessel had reached the pier in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico. He was charged with two counts of assault, including assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction, and assault resulting in a substantial bodily injury to a spouse or intimate partner.

Airline pilot receives $300k for wrongful arrest after being seen naked near airport

Fly Now, Pay Later. Easy monthly payments over 3, 6, or 12 months.

Clark Mindock, The Independent

An airline pilot who was arrested after being spotted naked in his hotel room overlooking Denver International Airport has been awarded a $300,000 wrongful arrest settlement from the Colorado city.

The man, United Airlines pilot Andrew Collins, was arrested in September 2018, after employees saw him apparently touching himself through the 10th floor window of his hotel room.

But Mr Collins’ attorney, Craig Silverman, apparently successfully argued that it is not against the law to be naked inside a Denver hotel room. A report from Fox31 Denver indicates that the pilot was also unaware that he could be seen from the outside.

The charges against Mr Collins were dismissed by a judge in March.

But the arrest, even though it was dismissed, had complicated Mr Collins’ routine. He had been suspended for six months from his job, but has now returned to the skies.

“I have to explain this situation every day without fail,” he told local media.

But, he sees his legal win as a positive: “That’s how we protect our rights — by holding people accountable.”

Associated Press

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Residents of a small Alaska city purchased a one-way airplane ticket for a woman believed to be dealing drugs as a way of fighting the spread of narcotics there, a report said.

About 40 Galena residents gathered at the airport last week and sent a representative to an arriving plane to tell a woman they believed to be a methamphetamine dealer that they would pay her $210 airfare to leave, The Anchorage Daily News reportedSaturday.

The woman chose to remain on the plane and take a departing flight after being told she would be closely watched if she remained.

Drug dealers are known to residents of the 475-member community 270 miles (435 kilometers) west of Fairbanks, said Mayor Nolan Aloysius. Nonetheless, community members encounter legal difficulties in stopping their activities.

The city is served by one police officer and a state trooper, who were both off-duty the day of the encounter, the newspaper reported.

The airport intervention followed a recent town hall meeting at which residents vowed to confront people believed to be drug dealers attempting to enter the area. When a resident of another community phoned Galena to alert them to the woman’s arrival, residents acted.

“People started calling, texting each other, and word went out fast,” Aloysius said. “Everyone took time from their jobs, ran over to the airport and made their presence known.”

A woman held a hand-written sign saying, “No drug dealers allowed.” A man wore black clothes and led a dog on a leash to look the part of a drug agent, demonstrators said.

“This was a general feeling of accomplishment and people were proud to be part of it,” Aloysius said.

Police admit white powder seized during drugs bust at Gatwick airport is actually cake mix for vegan bakery

Dropout

Alex Shipman,The Telegraph

Police have admitted that white powder seized during a “huge” drugs bust at Gatwick airport is actually cake mix for vegan bakery.

Vegan pizza restaurant Purezza was transporting ingredients in a suitcase when a member of staff was stopped by the police on August 28.

The white powder, which was divided into 25 blue bags, was sent for tests before officers accepted it was not illegal.

British Transport Police said: “‘Officers were called to Gatwick Airport station at 1.34pm on August 28 after a suitcase was found containing 25 bags of powder.

“Following a number of inquiries and tests, it was determined these bags of powder were cake ingredients for a vegan bakery.

“They were soon reunited with the owner, who has promised officers and staff a slice of cake in return.”

The restaurant, which has venues in Brighton and Camden, London, later tweeted: “Thanks for going easy on us guys! “A slab of cake all round is in order when you’re next in Brighton.”

Mexico’s Playa Bagdad mixes sun, sand and drug trafficking

Search Cancun Flights and Hotels

MARIA VERZA, Associated Press

PLAYA BAGDAD, Mexico (AP) — At the very eastern end of the U.S.-Mexico border there’s a long strip of sand where the Rio Grande meets the sea. It is called Playa Bagdad — or ‘Bagdad Beach.’

Unlike the Tijuana-Imperial Beach border on the western end, here there are no steel pilings marching out to sea to stop migrants from swimming, wading or paddling across to the United States.

In Playa Bagdad, which is spelled ‘Playa Baghdad’ by the Drug Enforcement Agency, it’s apparently unnecessary: This is a beach for drugs and crime, not migrants.

As attention focuses on the migrant crisis along the border that has drawn harsh rhetoric and actions from President Donald Trump, Playa Bagdad seems to have escaped notice.

Here, there are no walls or border guards, just miles of dunes and Gulf coast beaches marked only by simple wooden huts or awnings held up by sticks.

French couple faces prison time for taking 90 pounds of sand from Sardinia


16 agosto, inizio del controesodo.Questi invece si volevano portare un ricordino in Francia…. giusto 40 chili di sabbia di Chia

Posted by Sardegna Rubata e Depredata on Friday, August 16, 2019

According to the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, two French citizens poured white sand into 14 plastic bottles from Chia, a beach in southern Sardinia, and put them in the trunk of their SUV.  The couple wanted to take it home as a memory of their vacation, but instead were caught on a ferry en route to Toulon, France.

The pair was charged with theft under aggravated circumstance for having stolen from a public beach. They face between one and six years of jail time, according to the report.


New Jersey’s Teterboro Airport was travel hub of Jeffrey Epstein’s sex traffic ring


WOODLAND PARK, N.J. – Jeffrey Epstein’s globe-trotting life of luxury and alleged sex trafficking traveled through an unlikely hub: Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. From his mansion in Manhattan to his ranch in New Mexico and his island in the Caribbean, Epstein allegedly used his fleet of private jets to deliver dozens of sex slaves – some as young as 14 – to celebrities, royals and famous politicians, according to statements made in criminal and civil court filings since 2008, some of which were first released to the public last week.

The heart of Epstein’s global transportation network was a corporate airport carved from a New Jersey swamp. His planes, which ranged from a Cessna to a Gulf Stream jet to a Boeing 727, recorded at least 730 flights to and from Teterboro between 1995 and 2013, according to flight logs contained in documents unsealed last week by a federal court in a lawsuit brought by one of Epstein’s alleged victims against one of his close associates.

This represents roughly a third of all of Epstein’s flights, more than any other airport recorded in the logs.
