Drug gang steals business jet, loads and then crashes it
Thieves stole a business jet from an airport in central Mexico, flew it to Venezuela, apparently loaded it with drugs and then flew to Guatemala where the plane crashed, authorities said yesterday. Prosecutors in Guatemala said a total of four bodies were found around the site where the BAE 125 jet crashed and burned on Thursday. The dead could not be immediately identified, but drugs and weapons were found in the burned wreckage of the craft, which authorities referred to as a Hawker 800. The Guatemalan army said the plane made a stop in Venezuela before entering Guatemala, which borders Mexico. It crashed for unknown reasons.
