Police: Suspected cocaine confiscated from drug plane that landed in Belize early this morning

Posted: Monday, September 9, 2019. 6:57 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Yesterday Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, received intelligence that a drug plane from Venezuela was en route to Belize.

As a result, he assembled a team of security forces and staged them at known illegal airstrips. At 12:18 this morning, a plane was seen flying near the Coastal Road.

Officers in the area allowed the plane to land when two vehicles drove up to meet it. The men in those vehicles attempted to unload the delivery when the police emerged.

One of the vehicles attempted to flee the area but with a police patrol in pursuit, it resulted in an exchange of gunfire. Two of the passengers in the vehicle were shot in their hands and transported to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) for treatment.

The other police officers stayed at the scene to conduct processing. There, they counted 41 bails or 1,210 parcels of suspected cocaine. After officers deposited this discovery to the Forensics Department they learnt that an injured criminal was left in nearby bushes where the plane landed.

Officers returned and found him suffering from gunshot injuries which he claimed were caused by his own colleagues. He was transported to the KHMH where he has been listed in a stable condition. Police have since detained several Belizeans along with four Hondurans, one Ecuadorian and one Mexican.

According to police during this same time, another plane landed on the Mexican side of the border.
