Arthur Henry Burton Jr., a U.S. citizen deported by the Sandinista government after his private plane crash-landed in Nicaragua, was questioned and released by U.S. Customs Service officials when he arrived in Miami aboard a Costa Rican airliner. Managua had charged that Burton, 39, was on his way to Colombia to pick up cocaine when he crashed March 25. A Customs official said that because of the “possible drug involvement,” Burton was interrogated when he entered the United States but was then “sent on his way.”
