Friday, June 19th, 2015. BMG: Belize is not part of the ‘Legalize it!’ forum for marijuana consumption in the Caribbean, and therefore four persons accosted by the police on Thursday afternoon are facing charges of drug trafficking after being caught with 67 kilograms of marijuana.
Thirty-year old Calvin Augustus Lauriano, along with three companions, was intercepted by checkpoint cops on mile 31 of the George Price Highway. According to police reports, three policemen were doing routine checks when the suitcases of weed were found.
Twenty-four year old Guatemalan Marlon Osbaldo Chanec, twenty-year old Dawn Parchue and nineteen year old Eve Becks, along with Lauriano, were detained and charged with one count of drug trafficking each. They all pleaded ‘not guilty’ but were denied bail on grounds that the amount of substance exceeded 5 kilos.
All four are to return to court on August 21st, 2015.
