27-year-old Craig Hatherley and 33-year-old Lorenzo Lottimore [pictured/file photo] were found guilty of conspiring with others to import almost $1 million worth of heroin via a US Airways flight bound for Bermuda on June 2011.
An American baggage handler who worked at the Philadelphia International Airport, was arrested in connection with the scheme, confessed to the scheme and agreed to work with the U.S. authorities.
ZBM news reported that jurors deliberated for just over two hours before returning the guilty verdict.
Lorenzo Lottimore was previously charged in connection with the airport security incident on Tues, Sept 28th that saw two planes grounded, and airport services suspended while authorities conducted extensive security searches. He was charged with two counts of breaching airport security, and plead guilty to both at that time.
They were both remanded, and will be sentenced at a later date.
