2 San Francisco men guilty in Texas pot plane case


LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A pilot and passenger from California have pleaded guilty in a drug case involving a rented plane hauling marijuana and stopping to refuel in Texas.

Prosecutors in Lubbock say Michael Gallanter and Ethan Oliver Wynne-Wade pleaded guilty Thursday to possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Investigators on April 17 found more than 150 pounds of pot in duffel bags on the plane that landed in Lubbock.

No sentencing dates were immediately set for the San Francisco men, who face up to 20 years in prison and $1 million fines.

Federal agents received information that the plane was traveling under suspicious circumstances, including the men paying for fuel with cash.

Gallanter's flight plan was from northern California to Atlanta. The plane refueled in Page, Ariz., before arriving in Lubbock.
