HOUSTON (AP) ' Two Houston pilots have been allowed to return home after being detained for months in Panama in a money laundering investigation.

Kenneth Chonoski and Carl Moody were conditionally released Thursday. Both were arrested last May on suspicion of money laundering after landing a private jet.

The Houston Chronicle ( ) reports customs inspectors found $2.3 million in the bags of a passenger from Honduras. Three passengers, a customs officer and a chauffeur face charges.

Moody says he and Chonoski proved their innocence to prosecutors.

The pilots spent several months in prison, then were freed but required to stay in Panama pending the outcome of the cases. The Texans have promised to return for any court appearances.

The American Jet International pilots face U.S. deadlines for annual training to retain their licenses.
