LITTLE BELIZE, Mon. Oct 11, 2021– Belize police are believed to be conducting anti-narcotics operations in Northern Belize after a drug plane reportedly crash landed in Little Belize either late Thursday night or early Friday morning.
The police are yet to speak on the incident, though various media houses have contacted the Belize Police Department through the media relations group. We were told that the Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams would comment on the issue later on Monday. As of 4:45 pm, there have been no reports from the Commissioner or the Police Department.
As it stands right now, the story is that a plane carrying what is believe to be illicit cargo, narcotics, crash-landed. The first to report on a drug plane in the north were residents of San Pedro Town, who claim they saw a low flying plane sometime after midnight.
Unconfirmed reports are that the landing, about 20 feet away from the main feeder road in the area, extensively damaged the front of the plane, and its cargo was immediately offloaded and transferred to another location.
Police are believed to be out scouring the area in attempts to confiscate suspected narcotics that were believed to have been smuggled in.
Late this evening, the Commissioner of Police shared that he was out of the country and as a result was unable to give comments on the issue today, he promised to avail himself to the media tomorrow for comments.
