Flight Attendant Indicted for Mini-Bottle Theft

Posted By on Fri, May 13, 2016 at 9:00 AM

A Memphis flight attendant stole mini-bottles of liquor from her airline and sold them on Craigslist, a scheme that earned her an indictment from the Shelby County District Attorney General's (SCDAG) office on Friday. 

Rachel Trevor, 28, stole nearly 1,500 of those little bottles of rum, vodka, gin, whiskey, and other alcoholic beverages. She was arrested in November and now faces criminal charges of theft of property over $10,000, unlawful sale of alcohol, 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 bottles in her bag and then posted them for sale on Craigslist.

The bottles typically sell for $8 each on the airlines. Trevor was selling them for $1 each, investigators said.

She was arrested after agents made undercover purchases of the mini-bottles of liquor.
