A 28-year-old Delta Air Lines flight attendant was charged Friday with stealing some 1,500 50-ml bottles of spirits from the aircraft and selling them online.

Amy Weirich , the Shelby County district attorney, said in a statement that 28-year-old Rachel Trevor had been indicted on multiple charges including theft of property over $10,000, unlawful sale of alcohol, unauthorized transportation of alcohol, and unauthorized storage of liquor for sale.

Investigators with the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission said in a statement that Trevor placed 50-ml bottles of rum, vodka, gin, whiskey, and other spirits into her bag, took them home, and offered them for sale on Craigslist. While they typically sell for $8 each during a flight, the former Delta employee would offer them for sale on line for $1 each.

Trevor was arrested last November after trying to sell them to undercover agents.
