Friday, August 07, 2015. BMG: On Wednesday, August 5th around 3:30 pm, the Anti-Narcotics Unit discovered an abandoned grey helicopter on a feeder road in the Blue Creek area of the Orange Walk District.
According to police reports, the helicopter has registration numbers N607AZ and inside the aircraft, officers found several blue plastic containers with fuel adopted to increase the distance of travel for the helicopter.
Authorities believe that due to the close proximity with the Belize/Mexico border, the pilot and passengers of the helicopter may have fled into Mexico.
The aircraft has since been flown from the area by the Belize Defense Force and investigation into this matter continues.
