A Delta Airlines flight attendant was indicted on charges that she stole hundreds of mini-bottles and sold them on Craigslist.

Rachel Trevor, 28, of Memphis, Tenn., started off by stealing 50 mini-bottles, but eventually she smuggled nearly 1,500 bottles using a carry-on bag. She set up shop on Craigslist, selling the bottles for a dollar each.

But her little operation was discovered by authorities, who arrested her in November 2015 when they made an undercover purchase from her. Officers say she stole bottles of whiskey, gin, vodka, and rum.

While she was charging a dollar each, airlines usually make $8 on the liquor drinks, so she actually prevented the airline from making as much as $12,000 on the bottles.

Trevor was charged with unlawful sale of alcohol, unauthorized transportation or alcohol and theft of more than $10,000. She faces between 3 and 15 years in prison.
