Mexican military seizes $14million worth of cocaine from abandoned jet

The Mexican military has seized $14million worth of cocaine from a small jet that was parked in a clandestine airstrip.

The Secretariat of the Navy said the successful operation was pulled off Saturday after intelligence reports revealed suspicious activity in the southern state of Chiapas.

The Marines deployed a special team aboard a helicopter, which spotted the Cessna on the secret runway 26 miles northwest of Port Chiapas, a municipality located off the Pacific coast in the southern state of Chiapas.

An inspection of the abandoned aircraft unearthed 10 sacks filled with 358 kilos of cocaine in plastic wrappers.

 

The troops also found 14 canisters of jet fuel and two motorcycles were left behind as well.
