Drugs Were Ferried By Sea to Parts Unknown

According to ComPol Williams, the responding officers were once again met with spikes that punctured their vehicle tires. While a Mexican air asset was aloft, the coast guard vessel that was dispatched to the location did not arrive in time to intercept the fleeing go-fast boats.

“We had a team which was based about ten miles away from where the plane landed but that was just a four-man team. Notwithstanding that, the team attempted to go to the area where the plane landed but again, they were met by spikes on the road and that disabled the vehicle from proceeding to the particular area. Now, remember I said that this area is surrounded by water, and so, the road that had the spike would have only taken the team probably about a mile or so from where the plane had landed and then when they got to that location, there is a lagoon that they would have had to cross, a very deep lagoon. And so by foot, the team was not able to get to the location, they had to use boats. With the assistance of the coast guard they were able to get on that area where the plane had landed. Now while the plane was on the ground, we had aerial assistance from Mexican air assets and they has indicated to us, play by play what was happening and they said that there was like several A.T.V.s and there were three boats right by the lagoon and the cargo was loaded from the plane and the A.T.V.s were used and taken to the boat and then the boats took the drugs through the sea and perhaps went over to the Mexican side through the sea.”
