Marsha Gay Reynolds was arrested by Drug Enforcement Administration agents after abandoning $2 million worth of drugs at an LAX checkpoint for airline workers.
Upon getting busted, she kicked off her Gucci heels, dropped the drugs, and ran out.
She then boarded a flight to New York and went to her Queens apartment before getting a room in the Hilton Hotel near JFK Airport, the sources said.
The nearly 70 pounds of cocaine found stashed in her suitcases was estimated to be worth $2 million.

During the LAX incident, Reynolds was escorted to the front of the screening area and apparently became alarmed when she realized she’d be caught.
After walking about 15 feet with her carry-on bags, the former NYU track star threw them down and made a run for it, leaving behind the dope.
“She kicked her high heels off and left her shoes and bag behind,” said Marshall McClain of the Los Angeles Airport Peace Officers Association.
“She knew if she dropped both of them, she’d be able to run away more quickly,” he explained.
“She was then able to high-foot it out of the terminal, down an up escalator while barefoot, where we assume she got into a car and took off to parts unknown.”
In her bags, TSA agents found clothes, Trojan Magnum condoms and 68.49 pounds of cocaine wrapped in green saran wrap and labeled “BIG Ranch,” cops said.
She also left behind her leather, size-8½ Gucci shoes.
But because TSA agents did not get her name, Reynolds may have been able to board her red-eye flight to La?Guardia on Friday night.
After being apprehended in New York, she was charged in a criminal complaint filed in Los Angeles on Wednesday.
Reynolds is listed as a member of NYU’s 2004 women’s track and field team, according to the school’s website.
She was also a runner-up in the 2007 Miss Jamaica Universe pageant, according to the Jamaica Gleaner.
Reynolds was awaiting arraignment at Brooklyn federal court on Wednesday night.
We wonder how many time she’s done this before…
