MIAMI (Local10) – Flight attendant Marcelo Chaves appeared in a South Florida bond court on Thursday, 2 days after he was arrested at Miami International Airport.
That’s where he was getting off an American Airlines flight from Brazil with his live-in boyfriend & now listed co-defendant Ronald Maldonado.
When a CBP officer conducted a random check, they found that the 2 off-duty Delta flight attendants were packing more than travel clothes.
Pulled off the pair was Ketamine, Methamphetamine & GBL, a GHB substitute. It was discovered in 2 glass cosmetic bottles, a clear plastic bottle & in their luggage & there was enough that the couple is now facing felony drug trafficking charges.
They told investigators they were “doing drugs in Brazil” but didn’t know how the drugs got into the cosmetic bottles.
Delta Airlines released a statement, which read:
“Delta continually cooperates with law enforcement entities & the 2 off-duty flight attendants in question have been suspended pending outcome of an investigation.”
Chaves said he has been living in New York and New Jersey for last 12 years.
After hearing he was a flight attendant, the judge ordered a Nebbia hearing, known as a bail source hearing.
“You have to show the money used to post our bond is from a legitimate source of funds,” the judge told Chaves.
