Photo: Cocaine Floating in Lake Heron
New Mexico police continue to search for the wreckage of a single-engine plane that has left kilos of cocaine strewn across Lake Heron.
According to witnesses Sunday morning, they saw a plane go down in Heron Lake, part of Heron Lake State park which is located 20 miles south of Chama. Apparently after the plane crashed no survivors surfaced but bags of cocaine did.
New Mexico authorities have sent divers from the Laguna Vista Volunteer Fire Dept. to investigate. As of yet authorities do not know how many people were on the plane. Authorities have also not released where the flight originated from or its intended designation.
