Fifteen crew members from a South African Airways flight were arrested on Monday after 5 kilos of cocaine worth $357,000 were found in a bag, British customs officials said. Bob Gaiger of HM Revenue and Customs said the flight attendants and pilots were arrested as they passed through customs after disembarking the flight to London from Johannesburg on Monday morning. It is the second time in less than a month that the crew of a South African Airways flight has been arrested and accused of carrying illegal drugs. The pilot and flight attendants of the earlier flight were arrested at Heathrow in January after cocaine and cannabis were found in their bags.
