MEMPHIS – May 13, 2016 - A flight attendant has been indicted on charges that she stole nearly 1,500 mini-bottles of liquor from her airline employer and then offered them for sale online, Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich said Friday.
Rachel Trevor, 28, of Memphis faces criminal charges of theft of property over $10,000, unlawful sale of alcohol, and unauthorized transportation of alcohol and unauthorized storage of liquor for sale.
Investigators with the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission said that after a flight Trevor would put the small, 50ml bottles of rum, vodka, gin, whiskey and other alcoholic beverages in her bag and then posted them for sale on Craigslist.
The bottles typically sell for $8 apiece on the airlines. Trevor was selling them for $1 each, investigators said.
She was arrested in November after agents made undercover purchases of the liquor-filled mini-bottles.
The case is being handled by Asst. Dist. Atty. Kirby May.
