Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Authorities in Columbus, Ohio, were waiting for a traveler when she arrived. Her name is Lisette Lee, and she arrived in the city on a private jet. Inside the jet, she was carrying 13 suitcases. The DEA received a tip about somebody with excessive luggage. And in those cases, they allegedly found 500 pounds of pot. She told the police a friend asked her to carry the suitcases from Los Angeles, and paid her $60,000.
