Four American Airlines flight attendants were arrested Tuesday on money laundering charges at Miami International Airport, authorities said.
Carlos Alberto Munoz-Moyano, Maria Isabel Wilson Ossandon, Maria Beatriz Pasten-Cuzmar, and Miaria Delpilar Roman-Strick had just arrived at the airport from Chile when officers found more than $22,000 on them during a routine customs check, Miami-Dade police said.
Authorities said a Customs and Border Patrol agent was checking Munoz-Moyano who told the agent that he only had $100 on him, but the agent found $9,000, the Miami Herald reported, citing a police report.
This resulted in the other flight attendants being searched.
American Airlines said in a statement that they are cooperating with the investigation.
The suspects are being held on a $10,000 bond and an immigration hold, according to online court records.
