Pilot Killed in Crash of Drug Plane in Venezuela

CARACAS – A small plane carrying drugs crashed into a mountain in the northwestern state of Lara, killing the pilot, the Venezuelan Interior Ministry said Wednesday.

“We presume that (the small plane) went down too low to evade radar and crashed in the La Trinidad sector, on the Las Lagunitas ranch, city of Moran in Lara state, which is a mountainous area,” Deputy Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said.

Air defense radar detected the plane as it flew from the southern state of Amazonas, which is on the border with Colombia, through Apure state and into Lara, where it crashed around 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Reverol told state television.

National Guard troops from the drug enforcement command and Lara state police are investigating the crash.

“A drug seizure has been made. Four bales. We do not have the exact quantity,” the deputy interior minister said. EFE
