LIBERAL, Kan. (AP) — A pilot and a passenger have been arrested at a southwest Kansas airport after landing a plane carrying more than 140 pounds of cocaine.
The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/2psoveR ) reports that the cocaine was discovered after the twin-engine plane landed at the Liberal Mid-America Regional Airport on Wednesday.
Kansas Bureau of Investigation officials say authorities received a tip about the plane and asked the Seward County Sheriff's Office to conduct a "ramp check" on the plane as well as review the documentation and identification of the pilot and aircraft.
