    Daily Breeze: Two get prison in LAX marijuana smuggling scheme

    The son of a former Los Angeles fire chief and an ex-Transportation Security Administration agent were handed prison sentences Monday for their roles in a smuggling ring that shipped marijuana-filled luggage on flights out of LAX.

    U.S. District Judge Otis D. Wright II said Millage Peaks IV, 25 - whose father is a retired Los Angeles fire chief - was the "brains" behind the yearlong scheme in which co-defendant Randy Littlefield was bribed with as little as $200 to allow pot-filled suitcases onto Boston-bound planes.

    Peaks was sentenced to a year in federal prison and ordered to pay a $6,000 fine. Wright also ordered him to serve three years of supervised probation after he leaves prison.

    Littlefield was sentenced to eight months behind bars, and also ordered to serve three years of supervised release.

    LAist: Son Of Retired Fire Chief, Ex-TSA Agent Sentenced In LAX Pot Smuggling Ring

    Millage Peaks IV, the 25-year-old son of a former LAFD chief, was arrested in October 2011 and later found to be the brains behind the yearlong scheme, which netted over $70,000, according to City News Service. Former TSA agent Dianna Perez was promised $500 by Peaks for each weed-filled suitcase en route to Boston that cleared security checkpoints at LAX between November 2010 and October 2011. Ex-TSA agent Randy Littlefield, 29, of Paramount was also bribed $200 to look the other way. At least 10 shipments out of LAX were arranged by Peaks and carried out with the help of both Perez and Littlefield.

    So she got two years with an agreement to testify against the others? Should have sent the whole group to Gitmo.
