The Sheriff's Office said the plane crashed by the jail Friday, just to the south of a retention pond.
The pilot was trying to land on a jail access road because he couldn't make it to the airport, the agency said. He landed in a grassy area, then the plane hit a ditch and turned around.
No one was hurt.
