No clue’ what was in bag
THE 24-YEAR-OLD CANADIAN WOMAN who attempted to board a flight from J.F Kennedy Airport to Barbados in 2014 with firearms and marijuana had the items cleverly stashed in boxes of detergent, canned goods, diaper boxes and other containers in her luggage.
Nyesha McPherson told police that two men asked her to take money and clothing to Barbados and they were also the ones who packed her bags.
“I never carried the luggage, they carried it for me to check in. I had no idea what was in the luggage. They were going to pay me to bring the luggage to Barbados”, she told the authorities.
She pleaded guilty last April at the Queens County Supreme Court to second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and was given four years in prison while she was found guilty a month later of perjury and received one year.
McPherson was caught after an alarm went off when her luggage was passing through the x-ray machine belt. (MB)
