Remains of Suspected Drug Plane Found in OW District

Alejandro Cowo

The charred vestiges of a small single-engine aircraft believed to be a drug plane was found in a remote area of the Orange Walk District earlier this week, on Tuesday.  There is not much that investigators have unearthed aside from a few drums containing aviation fuel and seats of the plane.  The discovery was made approximately eighteen kilometers outside of Blue Creek, in the southeast corner of the district.  While the general area is the location of choice for narco-trafficking activities, when police arrived on the scene they did not encounter anyone in the vicinity.

“On Tuesday, February nineteenth, at about 1:30 p.m., Orange Walk Police visited a farm road about eighteen kilometers southeast of Blue Creek Community where on that road police found the burnt remains of a single-engine aircraft and about a quarter kilometer from there police found several containers, some of them containing suspected aviation fuel.  At the time of police’s arrival, there was no one in the area and no one has been detained so far.”
