Bermuda authorities arrested three people Wednesday who are believed to be part of a narcotics smuggling ring operating through Philadelphia International Airport, Bermuda officials said.

U.S. and Bermuda airport and airline employees "utilized their positions to circumvent airport security and federal inspection procedures to smuggle narcotics," according to a news release from the U.S. Consulate in Bermuda. Bermuda police did not release the names of those arrested. - Mike Newall
