    Obviously he was paid a lot of cash to drive that pick-up truck through the checkpoint to create a diversion so that the real shipment passes through! Belize needs to learn or maybe everyone is involved in this drug business. Obama is going to kill Belize. If the USA puts a red flag and warns it’s people to avoid Belize, Belize will suffer tremendously.
