An ultralight flight has landed two Brevard County men in jail on charges that they cultivated marijuana in a conservation area in Volusia County, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

 

An agency inspector was working on the nearby Seminole Ranch Conservation Area off State Road 46 about 9 a.m. Friday when he spotted an ultralight plane land near a palm island in the St. Johns River, an agency spokeswoman said in a release.

 

The inspector followed two men who left the plane and walked into the island. Wildlife officers later discovered two marijuana plants they say the men were tending on the island, spokeswoman Joy Hill said in the release.

 

Both men were booked into the Volusia County Jail later Friday.

 

The plane's owner, Ronald Thorstad, 53, was charged with cultivation of cannabis and possession of a firearm while in commission of a felony, both third-degree felonies, and use of paraphernalia, a misdemeanor. Passenger James Nordby, 67, was charged with cultivation of cannabis and use of paraphernalia
