Elements of the Secretary of National Defense (Sedena) seized an aircraft in the municipality of Tamazula, Durango, which was transporting more than 300 kilograms of cocaine from South America.
Through a statement, the agency reported that the plane was detected through its Integral Air Surveillance System, for which three military planes were ordered to take off to follow it up .
In this way, it was detected that the aircraft landed 14 kilometers from Tamazula, so three Air Force helicopters arrived at that site, but were received with several shots .
After repelling the attack and injuring one of the criminals, the army elements established a security perimeter to check the interior of the plane.
In total, 30 packages of cocaine weighing approximately more than 300 kilograms were found, as well as a long gun. For his part, the person who was injured was taken to a hospital under strong security.
Meanwhile, the seized drug was placed at the disposal of the competent authorities, to carry out the corresponding investigations to determine to which criminal organization the drug belonged and what its final destination was .
This assurance occurs a week after elements of the Navy located more than 1,300 kilos of cocaine floating in the sea, which were thrown from a small plane in mid-flight over the coast of Chiapas.
Previously, elements of the naval force and the Sedena were alerted to an aircraft coming from Central America, which, without identifying itself, crossed the airspace and entered the Mexican coast.
