Police Constable Freed Without Charges in Drug Plane Landing

Norman Anthony

While three persons are charged, Police Constable Norman Anthony was released sometime before ten p.m. on Tuesday, after being held in detention since Sunday evening in connection with the landing of a drug plane in Tres Leguas that night.  Anthony is the officer in charge of the Blue Creek police substation which also has jurisdiction over the area where the aircraft landed.  Attorney Leeroy Banner, who represents Anthony, says the police department has nothing with which to lay criminal charges on his client.

“From day one there was no evidence linking him to this plane.  The area where he was found that was his jurisdiction where he was working and the police stopped  him, he gave them certain information and the police did not believe him and they detained him, placed him in the pan of the pickup and minutes afterwards then the police heard a plane land and the police they pursued.”
