Gail Montenegro, spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, could release very few details regarding drugs found on this plane grounded at Liberal Municipal Airport Thursday morning. “U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, in cooperation with state and local authorities, executed a state search warrant early Thursday morning and seized 28 kilos of cocaine from an airplane in Liberal, Kansas,” Montenegro said. “One individual was arrested on state charges and may face federal prosecution. Because this investigation remains ongoing, no additional details can be released at this time.” Courtesy photo
