Cocaine floating in N.M. lake where plane crashed
Authorities have been 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 for the craft. Witnesses reported it crashed about 10:30 a.m. Sunday into Heron Lake in Rio Arriba County, said New Mexico State Police spokesman Lt. Eric Garcia.
State police were using sophisticated sonar equipment to help them locate the plane.
Lake patrol officers found several packages of cocaine that are about a kilogram, or 2 pounds, floating at the lake about 100 miles north of Santa Fe.
