He’s currently facing trial and authorities seized the private plane as part of the investigations.

“This is all day, every day. I mean, this is the fruits of our labour, and this is the successes of a great team effort by our state, local and federal partners coming together to hit the bad guys where it hurts, in their pocket.

“When we see a certain type of aircraft get sold, it raises our suspicions,” the agent added.
