WAYNE BRUNET & JACKSON COUNTY DOPE
Feds say 64-year-old pilot transporting 237 pounds of pot was headed for S.A.-area airport
64-year-old man was arrested by federal authorities Monday after they say he transported 230 pounds of marijuana from Oregon to Texas in an airplane.
Wayne Douglas Brunet, 64, now faces between five and 40 years in federal prison if convicted of the federal drug charges. He remains in federal custody pending a detention hearing scheduled for Thursday in Austin, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Brunet is believed to originally departed from Medford, Oregon on Sunday, March 19, stopping once in Holbrook, Arizona, before making his way to Texas.
gents from the Department of Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operation Center say Brunet was flying a suspicious flight pattern, so they began tracking him.
The agents followed his flight path to an airport in Bulverde, Texas, where Brunet was scheduled to land, but when he arrived and noticed the authorities waiting for him, he went airborne again.
He flew next to the Lago Vista airport, near Lake Travis, but aborted his landing again, as authorities were waiting for him there as well.
Finally, Brunet landed at the Llano Municipal Airport just after midnight Monday and attempted to flee on foot. He was apprehended and 15 duffel bags filled with vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana and $6,000 were recovered from his plane.
The investigation is being conducted by Homeland Security Investigations, the Texas Department of Public Safety Air Unit and the Llano County Sheriff's Office "
