Tuesday, August 25th, 2015. BMG: On Monday, August 24 2015, Wayne Thomas, 32, from Orange Walk was reportedly caught trying to traffic marijuana across the San Pancho border from Nicaragua to Costa Rica.
Officials informed that when Thomas arrived at the border in San Pancho, the white van he was driving was thoroughly searched.
