Two government contractors from Washington, D.C., were intercepted by federal agents on Sunday as they tried to board a cruise ship with an array of drugs they planned on selling to passengers, police said.
Officials say an off-duty TSA agent fell to his death Saturday from a hotel balcony inside Florida’s Orlando International Airport.
Police said a man in his 40s jumped, in an apparent suicide, from the balcony of the Hyatt Regency Hotel onto an atrium floor in the main terminal at about 9:30 a.m. ET.
The man was found in critical condition and taken to a hospital, but was later pronounced dead.
