BROOKSHIRE -- Deputies from the Waller County Sheriff’s Office and officials from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) continue their investigation into a plane abandoned Nov. 21 at Houston Executive Airport here. It was discovered the plane was carrying a load of marijuana, according to officials at the scene, although no pilot or crew had been located just after the event.
According to Chief Deputy John Kremmer of the Waller County Sheriff’s Office, records indicate the plane’s owner lives in La Vernia. The FAA’s website indicates the plane was last registered to the late James H. Cleveland, formerly of La Vernia. Kremmer said Cleveland’s family might have sold the plane. The two agencies, he said, are attempting to establish the plane’s true ownership.
