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.

The Dominican Republic resort where a Delaware woman claims she was brutally beaten and left for dead has temporarily closed due to low occupancy, according to Delaware Online.

Tammy Lawrence-Daley, 51, shared a now-viral Facebook post in May saying she had been attacked while staying at the Majestic Elegance Punta Cana resort in January.

The post, which included gruesome photos of Lawrence-Daley’s battered face, described an attack by an unknown man who she said choked her repeatedly, kicked her in the head and dragged her down a flight of stairs. Lawrence-Daley said the assault occurred while she was walking in a rotunda between two of the hotel’s buildings.

Now, Majestic Resorts is closing its Punta Cana hotel, saying it has lost thousands of visitors since numerous stories of American tourists dying or being injured while visiting the Dominican Republican began surfacing earlier this year.

Newlywed downed 4 beers before flight, went on homophobic rant and attacked flight attendants on way to his honeymoon


Find the best deal with HotelsCombined.com

A man on an easyJet flight was supposed to be on his way to Egypt, where he was set to celebrate his honeymoon with his bride. Instead, he has been handed seven months in jail after he drunkenly assaulted two flight attendants and went on a homophobic rant.

The court heard that he was escorted off the plane by police officers who he abused, calling one of them a ‘baldy c***’. His wife was heard shouting: ‘Look at what you’ve done. You have f****** off our honeymoon!’

Judge David Rennie said: ‘It was like a child having a tantrum. You chose to drink four pints and to behave in a foul-mouthed, highly abusive manner. Something of your true character did reveal itself.

‘We do have to ask why airports are selling that amount of alcohol outside of usual licensing hours.

‘An attack on the perceived sexuality of these men was utterly shameful. People like you find yourself on the edge of society.

‘Only an immediate custodial sentence can be justified.’ 

 

Michael Cunnett, 38, was jailed for seven months today for punching two easyJet crew members after downing four pints of Stella ahead of the 9am flight in February

Jet Blue pilots accused of drugging and raping female crew members in new lawsuit

HP Commission

Two female JetBlue crew members claim they and a third women were drugged by two pilots for the airline, and that one of those pilots also raped them and intentionally passed on a sexually transmitted disease, according to a lawsuit filed Monday.

The plaintiffs, referred to in the suit as Jane Doe 1, of Riverton, Utah, and Jane Doe 2, of Fort Worth, Texas, say the incident occurred in San Juan, Puerto Rico in May 2018. The women had just completed their shift on a flight from Washington, D.C., to Puerto Rico, and checked into the Intercontinental Hotel in San Juan. They then headed to the beach together, where they met Eric Johnson and Dan Watson, the defendants. After a brief chat, they learned the men were JetBlue pilots.
