A release from the US embassy states that a U.S. Army aircraft from the Joint Task Force Bravo based in Soto Cano, Honduras provided airlift support to the Belize Defense Force, Belize Coast Guard, Anti-Drug Unit and Mobile Interdiction Team as they conducted marijuana field eradication operations throughout Belize.  With the help of two UH-60 Blackhawks and one CH-47 Chinook helicopter members of the Belize military and police forces were able to destroy over 52,800 marijuana plants, 10 pounds of seeds and 1000 pounds of processed marijuana with a total estimated U.S. street value over $27 million.  This operation was part of a continuing partnership between the United States and Government of Belize to disrupt illegal activities and discourage criminal organizations from operating in Belize.
