Maintenance Workers Find 26.2 Pounds Of Cocaine Stashed On American Airlines Plane

If you left a package containing a bunch of bricks of cocaine on an American Airlines jet, law enforcement in Tulsa, OK would like to speak with you.

Maintenance workers who were assigned to an American jet that was in for service at Tulsa International Airport stumbled upon 26.2 pounds of white powder stowed on the aircraft, reports (warning: link has video that autoplays).

It’s unclear where the drugs were stashed, or if there are any suspects. The Drug Enforcement Agency was notified, and agents removed a total of 10 packages of the white powdery substance from the plane. It was later identified as cocaine.

“Narcotics were discovered on a Boeing 757 during routine maintenance at the Tulsa Maintenance and Engineering Base,” the carrier said in a statement. “Upon discovery, American immediately contacted law enforcement. Our Corporate Security team is working directly with law enforcement during their investigation.”
