Pilot Accused Of Carrying 230 Pounds Of Weed Flies To 3 Airports In Unsuccessful Attempt To Ditch Cops

When 64-year-old Wayne Douglas Brunet took off in his small airplane from Medford, Oregon with 230 pounds of marijuana in tow, he likely wasn’t planning on leading law enforcement agents on a chase to three different Texas airports. Unfortunately for Brunet, that’s allegedly just what happened.

As High Times reports, federal agents began monitoring Brunet’s trip because of his “irregular flight pattern,” which included only one stop—to refuel—in Holbrook, AZ prior to arriving at an unmanned airport in Bulverde, Texas.

According to a press release issued by the Justice Department, Brunet spotted authorities at the Bulverde airport and immediately took off again. Not long later, he arrived at Lago Vista (TX) airport, where he allegedly again spotted law enforcement agents on the ground and again took off for another airport.

Shortly after midnight, Brunet landed at Llano Municipal Airport, where he allegedly tried to escape on food. Members of the Texas Department of Public Safety Air Unit arrested him and allegedly discovered 15 duffel bags filled with vacuum-sealed weed and $6,000 in cash inside the plane.

Brunet was charged possession with intent to distribute marijuana. He faces between five and 40 years in federal prison if convicted.
