LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Two people whose plan to sell more than 160 pounds of marijuana was revealed when their small plane crashed earlier this year in West Texas have each been sentenced to two years in prison.

Dorothea Cangelosi of Waller, Texas, and pilot Gregory Thomas of Sacramento, Calif., were sentenced Friday in federal court. The pair pleaded guilty in August to charges that included possession with intent to distribute.

Prosecutors say the two were flying April 30 from Sacramento to Houston in a Beechcraft Bonanza when they stopped to refuel at an airport in Plains, near the New Mexico state line. They encountered engine trouble as they departed, causing the plane to flop into a field beyond the runway.

The 50-year-old Thomas and the 66-year-old Cangelosi tried to hide the drugs but were discovered.
