Default Delta worker caught smuggling guns

Delta baggage handler was arrested Monday for allegedly smuggling firearms some loaded into the Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta, where he handed them off to an accomplice who flew to New York, federal law enforcement officials said.

The man, Eugene Harvey, was charged with "entering an airport area in violation of security requirements."

Harvey, also a ramp agent, allegedly shuttled the firearms into the airport avoiding detection since airport workers don't go through TSA screening, according to an affidavit filed by a senior federal air marshal, George Randell Taylor.

The 31-year-old Harvey came under suspicion as a result of a New York Police Department investigation into individuals trafficking stolen and straw-purchased firearms from Atlanta to the New York area.

Video footage from the Atlanta airport showed Harvey allegedly delivering the weapons to a man, Mark Quentin Henry, who would then carry them with him on flights to New York. Those guns were believed to have been handed over to a third co-conspirator who sold the weapons to a New York undercover officer, the affidavit says.

Henry was arrested on Dec. 10 and charged with felony crimes of criminal possession of weapons and criminal sale of firearms. He is accused of supplying 129 handguns of various makes and models, and two assault rifles all obtained in Georgia to the third co-conspirator from May 1 to Dec. 10. When Henry was arrested, he had on him 18 handguns seven that were loaded, according to the affidavit.

Have a nice holiday buddy in the slammer.

Lock them up and charge them with any crimes committed with guns traced back to them.

Unfortunately the guns would probably end up being used for no good. Now if it could be guaranteed that they were to be given to people for self defense then absolutely. Smuggle away.
