Remnants of Burning Aircraft Found Near Little Belize

According to ComPol Williams, while the aircraft could not be tracked for a few hours, they were able to get a lead the following morning that the burning vestiges of an airplane was located near Little Belize in Corozal District. Several quick response teams were immediately deployed to the area.

“Around four a.m., thereabout, the Mexican air asset left our airspace having not being able to locate the aircraft and so we were of the belief that the aircraft might have gone over Belize and left either to Guatemala or Mexico. Sometime around seven a.m. on Friday morning, we received a call that an aircraft was seen burning in the area of Little Belize. The teams were quickly mobilized and sent to the location where the burnt remains of an aircraft were found. The team proceeded to conduct intense operations within the area with the hope of locating whatever cargo may have come on that plane.  Our operation lasted for two to three days and yielded nothing. So with that, we withdrew from the area. We do believe that the content of the plane was drugs, but we cannot confirm. That is our belief as what happened is consistent with what is normally done with these drug planes. The Mexican authorities were in the picture and they too conducted operations on their side of the border and they too yielded nothing from the operations. So that is where we are with that matter at this time.”
