Sept. 11 suspect's flying teacher faces drug charges

HOUSTON The former owner of the Florida flight school where two Sept. 11, 2001, terror suspects learned to fly has been ordered jailed without bail after he was arrested in Houston on drug trafficking charges.

Rudi Dekkers is charged with two drug conspiracy counts. Court documents show he was caught Dec. 2 in a federal drug sting while representing an international drug trafficker.

A federal complaint says that after meetings and lengthy surveillance, Dekkers was found in possession of about 40 pounds of cocaine and about two pounds of heroin.

The Dutch national was being held as a serious flight risk.

Dekkers formerly owned the flight school in Venice where investigators say Mohamed Atta and Marwan el Shehhi learned to fly.
