A flight attendant has been indicted for stealing 1,500 mini-liquor bottles and selling them online, the Shelby County District Attorney’s Office in Tennessee announced.

Rachel Trevor, who was employed by a Delta affiliate, allegedly snuck 50-milliliter bottles of rum, gin, and other alcoholic beverages into her bag before departing the planes she worked on, then sold them for $1 each online.

The bottles sell for $8 in-flight.

“Endeavor Air expects nothing short of the highest standard of integrity from our employees and takes seriously any activity that falls short of that expectation,” the company said in a statement, via ABC News. “This employee is no longer employed by the airline. We will continue to work with authorities as needed.”

Trevor was caught in November when undercover agents purchased the alcohol from her online. She now faces charges of theft, unlawful sale of alcohol, and unauthorized transportation and storage of alcohol for sale.
