We are just learning now about a drug bust that happened in late May. A 46 year old Bend man is arrested in Canton, Illinois after police are notified that he is piloting a plane carrying about 78 pounds of marijuana. Canton police had just 20 minutes notice that John Busche of Bend was to land his plane at the airport for a pot delivery before continuing on to North Carolina. According to our news partner, News Channel 21, police found 13 pounds of pot in a suitcase and another 65 pounds stashed in other areas of the plane.  The value of the pot was placed at about $450,000. Busche was taken into custody and is held in the Fulton County Jail.
