Private Jet Used to Run Drugs

Lisette Lee, a 28-year-old who claims to be an heir to the Samsung fortune, used a private jet to ferry large amounts of marijuana into the Columbus, OH area, federal investigators said.

Authorities say she made numerous trips to the Port Columbus International Airport—most recently with 500 pounds of pot for distribution in Ohio and surrounding areas. Lee was charged with conspiracy and possession of drugs with the intent to distribute. Her bodyguard and two personal assistants were also arrested, but were later released pending possible indictments.

The most interesting part of this story is the allegation that authorities were tipped off that she was travelling with a "suspicious amount" of luggage. Anyone who's worked at an FBO, for a charter operator, or has dealt with private travel can tell you that the 13 suitcases Lee was bringing is far from suspicious. In fact, some people travel with twice that! Paris Hilton tweeted pictures of her with all her luggage (although who KNOWS what was in those Louis trunks!)

Sounds to me like someone knew what was going on and wanted to ruin her sweet deal. The profits from moving 500 pounds of MJ from California (where it would be cheap from Mexico) to Ohio (where it's in MUCH shorter supply and WAY more expensive) more than cover the twenty or thirty thousand for the charter!
