Investigators in Hays County say they seized 850 pounds of marijuana that had been delivered to the area on a small plane that flew into the San Marcos Airport.

Investigators say Joe Frank Corder, 64, of Wimberley, flew a plane to the airport where they watched the pot being loaded into an SUV.

Police later pulled over the SUV in San Marcos, seized 16 duffel bags full of marijuana and arrested the driver -- Melvin Alexander Duran, 33.

Both men are being held in the Hays County Jail.  Duran is charged with possession of marijuana.  Corder is charged with delivery of marijuana.

A minor arrested with Duran is in juvenile detention.

Both the Hays County Sheriff’s Office and San Marcos police were involved in the arrests.
