ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - The Rapides Parish sheriff says two suitcases of marijuana were seized from a south Florida man after his plane made a fuel stop at Alexandria International Airport.
Sheriff Chuck Wagner said Wednesday that 37-year-old Raimondi Salvatore Rosario, of Port St. Lucie, Fla., was booked with possession with intent to distribute after deputies discovered the drug.
Thursday's Town Talk (http://bit.ly/qOfNB9 ) reported that Homeland Security investigators told deputies that Rosario had filed a suspicious flight plan out of Nevada.
Wagner says Rosario refused to let deputies search the plane. But he says their narcotics dog "Sam," found the drugs immediately.
Wagner said Rosario was freed on bond Tuesday, the day he was arrested.
