Drugs, guns found believed linked to Bacalar plane

Chetumal, Q.R. — Members of the 34th Military Zone in the capital city of Chetumal have confirmed the seizure of more than 200 packages of cocaine along with weapons and ammunition.

Elements of the Mexican Army say they seized 241 packages of cocaine and six weapons along with more than 2,000 cartridges after making the discovery in the Juan Sarabia community, about 25 kilometers west of the city of Chetumal.

The weapons and drugs were found in a safe house after a search of the premises. The Secretaría de la Defensa Nacional (Sedena) did not report any arrests, only the seizure of illegal items. It is believed possible that the drugs were part of the load from an illegal landing in Bacalar earlier this week.
