Suspect plane found in Pueblo Nuevo Lagoon

News of a plane leaving an airstrip without a flight plan from Spanish Lookout and landing in Venezuela on February twenty-first under suspicious circumstances, led authorities in that country to conduct tests that proved positive for cocaine. Two men, including a resident from Mango Creek, were charged with conspiracy and transportation of illicit trafficking of narcotic and psychotropic drugs. Tonight, a Cessna plane reportedly from Mexico has crashed into a shallow inner lagoon near the Pueblo Viejo Ferry on the outskirts of Corozal Town. The small plane is partially submerged in the water and some reports say that the contents have been stripped clean. While the plane has just now been found, law-enforcement agents have been looking for it since last week. There were no pilot or passengers at the site, so there are no detentions. Early this morning, Corozal Police, B.D.F. personnel and Civil Aviation Authorities were deployed to the area and the plane is tonight under guard. The intention is that it will be pulled out of the lagoon shortly. We hope to have more details of this incident as soon as information becomes available.

    Belize is so bad with technology that it is hard to detect any small plane. This is about the third time that something like this happens and the airport cannot detect it. I wonder why? Can it be that there is a dead rat? HMMMMM!!!!!
