Suspected Drug Plane Found Burnt near Chan Chen, Corozal

As earlier as eight a.m. today, reports reaching our newsroom were that the remnants of suspected plane were discovered somewhere in the village of Chan Chen in Corozal District, which is not far from the Mexican border.   The images sent to us show that the suspected drug plane made the illegal landing before it either combusted or was torched to destroy any evidence of its cargo.  Late this evening, police issued an official report on the plane. It says that the twin-engine aircraft with markings N-five-four-six-one was found approximately quarter of a mile north west of Chan Chen Village and that about seventy-five percent of the aircraft was destroyed. But there were several other items discovered at the scene. Those include eleven small aluminium buckets, four portable rechargeable led lights and a magazine containing thirty-four live rounds of seven point six-two ammunition. No one was in the area.
