Plane full of pot abandoned in Texas

November 22, 2011 (HOUSTON)

Someone landed the twin-engine aircraft at the Houston Executive Airport and disappeared into the night.

Investigators found marijuana inside but no crew or passengers. Officials say the pilot had refused to talk to the control tower. The plane's nose went down in the airfield, and he skidded off into the grass.

Authorities are now waiting to see if anyone returns to try and retrieve the contraband.
