Authorities are pulling bundles of cocaine from a New Mexico lake near Chama where a small plane crashed, but they haven’t found any survivors or bodies.
State police divers continued searching Heron Lake on Monday after failing to find the craft Sunday.
New Mexico State Police spokesman Lt. Eric Garcia says witnesses saw the small aircraft crash about 10:30 a.m. Sunday into the lake in Rio Arriba County.
Lake patrol officers found several packages of cocaine that are about a kilo, or 2 pounds, in size floating at the lake about 100 miles north of Santa Fe.
Garcia says the type of aircraft and the number of people on board is not yet known.
The Federal Aviation Administration was sending an investigator to
look into the cause of the crash.
