Ten employees for companies working in Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport were indicted for allegedly attempting to smuggle methamphetamine drugs through the airport, USA attorneys announced Tuesday.

"This case shows the lengths that these individuals would go to - individuals who are trusted with insider knowledge of our commercial airport system - to just obtain cash", Cox said.

Each faces a charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a schedule II controlled substance, but some of the 10 are accused of conspiring to move other contraband, such as weapons and explosives, on aircraft departing the airport, according to a news release from the USA attorney's office in Dallas.

According to prosecutors in Texas, the men transported the drugs in suitcases and backpacks from August 2016 to February this year.

'Smugglers are constantly seeking new ways to move illegal contraband across the country and we will do whatever necessary to thwart these criminals at every turn. "This joint operation allowed us to successfully arrest ten individuals who used their positions of employment and access to compromise an aspect of airport security", said Eric K. Jackson, FBI Dallas Special Agent-In-Charge.

Most were sent to Newark, New Jersey, one was sent to Charlotte, North Carolina and another was sent to Phoenix, Arizona. At that time, the defendants smuggled a substance they thought was be methamphetamine onto a commercial airline. Investigators say the suspects used their positions to bypass security and place the meth on flights. In 2015, the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested four D/FW workers after they promised they could get cocaine from the airport to other destinations around the country. "The defendants would also act as "look-outs" or engage in counter-surveillance to undermine police presence". "We take this matter very seriously and are cooperating with law enforcement during their investigation", the company said.

The arrestees named in the indictment are: Envoy employees Nelson Pabon, Jean Loui Vargas-Malave, Juan Comancho Melendez, Ruben Benito-Matienzo, Joshua Israel Pagan Zapata, Domingo Villafane Martinez III and Luis Javier Collazo Rosado; Spirit employee Jose Luis Gaston-Rolon and former Spirit employee Christian David Cruz.

Seven of those arrested worked for Envoy Air, a regional carrier owned by American Airlines, while two others were employees for Spirit Airlines.
