The Salina Connection

I'm just trying to picture the movie version of this story: DEA agents found more than 300 pounds of coke on a plane that had stopped to refuel in Salina, Kan., in December 2002. Authorities tried to lure the man who chartered the flight, Kevin X. Frater, to Salina by coming up with a story about the plane having broken down with mechanical problems. Instead, Frater fled the country, spending time in Cuba, Jamaica, the U.A.E. and England, which is where he was caught. He was finally extradited in 2009 and has just been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison, the U.S. Attorney for Kansas reports.
