A pilot named Badlands McNally found himself in some serious trouble at the R.L. Jones Airport after U.S. Customs and Border Protection asked agents to do a pilot certification on Badlands.
Upon investigating him, authorities found McNally to be in possession of more than 100 pounds of methamphetamine and weapons.
McNally was eventually arrested by the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office.
The pilot faces charges of aggravated trafficking of illegal drugs and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

The deputy then called Tulsa police and requested a K9 unit. The K9 officer conducted an open air search and directed deputies to the plane.
When they opened the door of McNally’s plane, there was an overwhelming smell of chemicals from inside, according to the report.
Agents found two large black duffel bags, carrying 102.7 pounds of meth, as well as two pistols and a rifle with multiple magazines behind the pilot’s seat.
In total, authorities found two large black duffel bags carrying a total of 101.7 pounds of methamphetamine, two pistols, and a rifle behind the pilot’s seat.
Hopefully this wasn’t just another day in the office for Mr. Badlands.
