2000 pounds of cocaine burned in Belize

A week after the Belize Police Department’s seizure of over 2,000 pounds of cocaine following a narco plane landing, the drugs have been burnt in compliance with an order. The Police Department oversaw the destruction of the 28 bales of cocaine retrieved.
By time the plane arrived into Belizean airspace, the operation was already compromised. The aircraft went down between the villages of Lemonal and Crooked Tree. Two boats were seen speeding from the area using the nearby lagoon. A boat, believed to have been occupied by the Mexican support team and the pilot, escaped. A second boat, and 9 traffickers were busted.
