HOUSTON (AP) — Two Houston airport employees are charged with taking money to try to smuggle heroin and fraudulent documents through security.

The U.S. attorney’s office for Houston says Rolin Eli Escober and Elidia Molina are charged with possessing and conspiring to possess a controlled substance. Escober and Molina were arrested Friday.

Prosecutors say Escober and Molina used their knowledge of Bush Intercontinental Airport security to smuggle items for cash from an undercover officer posing as a drug trafficker.

They say the two were arrested after smuggling 1.2 kilograms of heroin and 13 kilograms of what they thought was heroin through security and into the hands of waiting undercover officers.

They face up to life in prison.

Neither had an attorney listed in online court records.
