California man indicted for plane full of pot in Nebraska

(04-05) 15:48 PDT Omaha, Neb. (AP) --

A California man accused of landing a plane loaded with 175 pounds of pot in Nebraska has been indicted on federal drug charges.

The U.S. attorney's office in Omaha says 29-year-old Justin Woodcock, of South Lake Tahoe, Calif., is charged with intent to distribute more than 50 kilograms of marijuana. The indictment was unsealed Thursday.

Prosecutors say Woodcock was arrested after he landed a small plane in Alliance in the Nebraska Panhandle on March 9.

If convicted, Woodcock faces up to 20 years in prison, a $1 million fine and forfeiture of the airplane.

Online records for the U.S. District Court don't list an attorney for Woodcock.
