Eighteen former and current JFK workers were arrested in connection with the theft of more than 100,000 mini liquor bottles at the airport over the last five months, the Queens District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.

The airport employees also stole duty-free items, including cigarette cartons, perfume and larger bottles of booze. In total, the retail value of the lifted goods is estimated at $750,000.

Three of the workers arrested were security guards and 15 were truck drivers for LSG Sky Chefs, the food and beverage subsidiary for American Airlines. Instead of transporting unsold mini liquor bottles from planes to a storage facility in the airport, they would steal them.

Earlier this year, the Port Authority Inspector General’s Office learned that Sky Chefs employees might be stealing liquor at JFK, and launched a joint uncover investigation with the District Attorney’s Airport Investigations Unit, leading to today’s arrests.

Queens babysitter gets 11 years in shaken baby death

A Corona babysitter has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for shaking a baby to death in December 2010, said the Queens District Attorney’s Office.

According to the DA’s office, on December 29, Ana Delarosa, 28, was babysitting the three-month old of a family friend in Queens. When the baby woke up and started crying, she tried to calm the child. But when it didn’t work, she violently shook him, exclaiming, “What is wrong with you? Why are you crying?”

The child went limp, and was rushed to the hospital in cardiac arrest and later died. Autopsy results showed that he had brain damage and other signs that he had been shaken to death.

In June of this year, Delarosa pled guilty to one count of second-degree manslaughter and one count of first-degree assault in the child’s death. She also waived her right to an appeal and will be deported to her native Mexico after she serves her time in jail.
