The husband of a former Delta Air Lines employee who admitted using her security credentials to smuggle drug money has also pleaded guilty to his role in a meth trafficking ring that operated between California and Hawaii.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Loo says Falefia Fuamatu pleaded guilty today to a conspiracy charge involving distribution and possession of methamphetamine. Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 16.

According to an indictment, he flew from Honolulu to Los Angeles at least twice to deliver nearly $1 million in drug proceeds.

His wife, Sifatutupu Fuamatu, pleaded guilty last week. She admitted using a swipe card to bypass security to carry the money through the Honolulu airport. She would meet her husband at the gate and they would fly together.
