1.5 Tons of Cocaine Worth US$18 Million Found in Narco Jet

Chester Williams

In July of this year, Mexican authorities busted another drug plane. According to news media in Chetumal, a man with foreign passports who claimed to be the pilot was detained. That man, it is said, has a long criminal record. It is also being reported that the cocaine was packed in fifty-four parcels.  The total street value is more than eighteen million U.S. dollars. 


Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police

“After the plane landed there were a number of persons who sought to remove the cargo and the crew of the plane but they were quickly intercepted by the Mexican authorities and they are in custody. We also learned that over one point five ton of cocaine has been confiscated from that plane. I think they took the chance to land, stay alive and be caught instead of land, crash and die. That could be a possibility.”
