Atchison police seize airplane full of marijuana

ATCHISON, Kan. — Police seized an airplane full of marijuana and arrested five people at a northeast Kansas airport.

Atchison police Mike Wilson says investigators found 42 pounds of marijuana on the airplane Wednesday night at Amelia Earhart Airport.

Wilson says police received information that the 1952 Beechcraft C-35 aircraft was headed to Atchison and a car from Kansas City would be waiting for it.

When the plane landed, officers arrested three people from Colorado in the plane. A fourth Colorado resident and a Kansas City resident were arrested in the car.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports the suspects are in custody at the Atchison County Jail. The investigation is continuing.
