Man builds plane runway on his property, faces criminal charges


If you have plans to do something illegal on your property, you might want to think of something that's a little less... obvious?

Jeffrey Walker, 44, of Woodbury, is accused of creating an airstrip on his Afton farm property without permission from the city. He claims it isn't an airport because there is no hangar or lights along what very clearly appears to be a runway. And if you needed some proof for the case, neighbors have pictures of small yellow plans landing and taking off on the property in 2006.

Walker's jury trial started June 15 in Washington County. He could face prison time if found guilty.
