Wednesday, August 6, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Dorian Avilez, employed as a driver for Minister of Foreign Affairs and Attorney General Wilfred Elrington, was detained while attending Sunday’s UDP convention in Belize City.

A police officer searched him at the entrance of the ITVET compound and recovered a transparent plastic bag containing 7.1 grams of cannabis in his right side pants pocket.

Avilez pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to possession of controlled drugs and was offered bail and a surety of $800.

But he owes the court $2,900, part of a fine given in 2003 for a conviction for possession of unlicensed ammunition which he had failed to clear.

He returns to court on September 25.
