Brooklyn NY security guard, Yankee Stadium Security Guard

A Brooklyn jury ordered Delta Airlines to pay $759,000 in damages to a Yankees Stadium security guard who was arrested after a nefarious baggage handler planted cocaine in his suitcase.

Brooklyn New York – A Brooklyn jury ordered Delta Airlines to pay $759,000 in damages to a security guard who was arrested after a nefarious baggage handler planted cocaine in his suitcase.

“I must give praise and thanks to God!” a beaming Roger Levans said outside Brooklyn Federal Court Thursday, after the jury deliberated only two hours and found the airline was negligent.

When he was stopped in Kennedy Airport back in January 2011 after a Delta flight from Guyana, Levans told Customs officers he was bringing back “cooked rabbit.” He was arrested after officers found three bricks of cocaine alongside the food in his suitcase.

The security guard spent one day in jail and was booted from his job at Yankees Stadium.

But while Levans was free on bail, the feds determined that his bag was indeed tampered with after he had checked his luggage.

A corrupt baggage handler apparently tied a ribbon to the suitcase containing the illicit drugs so it would be recognized by an accomplice in New York City, according to court papers.
