Military fighter jets intercepted a four-seat, single-engine plane that violated a temporary flight restriction over Los Angeles that was in place as President Obama left LAX, military officials said.
The jets followed the plane until it landed at Long Beach Airport about 30 minutes later, the statement said.
Long Beach police met the plane. Authorities said they found as much as 10 kilograms of marijuana on the plane.
The White House said it would have no statement.
