An unintended side effect of the Great White Up’s stricter gun control laws, perhaps:
A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted a man accused of stealing a plane in Canada and flying over Wisconsin and two other states before landing along a dark southern Missouri highway.
Adam Dylan Leon, 31, was indicted in St. Louis on federal charges of interstate transportation of a stolen aircraft, importation of a stolen aircraft and illegal entry.
Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Reap said Leon is accused of flying a stolen Cessna 172 aircraft into the U.S. on April 6 from an airport in Ontario, Canada. He faces a maximum of 20 years and six months in prison.
Authorities said Leon stole the plane from a flight school he attended and landed it more than seven hours later near a highway in southern Missouri. Leon allegedly told the FBI he was trying to commit suicide by U.S. fighter jet.
Methinks the young man is preparing an insanity defense. I mean, after all, Missouri?
