Feds foil narco jet plot

Cartel associate Jesus Emanuel Pimentel Enriquez, 41, and Dallas resident Tomas Borjas Mendez, 38, landed prison stints for forking over $600k to illegally buy a plane meant to smuggle cocaine. Cash went to an Orlando plane broker for a Gulfstream G III, parked on a private tarmac at the Sanford Orlando International Airport. He was a federal rat.
The unspecified cartel planned to fly the plane to Mexico and then Venezuela to pick up 2,500 kilos of Colombian cocaine. Drugs were to be divided up in Mexico and sent across the border by truck to several U.S. cities. The plane was intended for a one way mission only.
