Wednesday, November 25th, 2015. BMG: Yesterday around 12:05 a.m., members of the police’s Special Patrol Unit were doing routine foot patrol in Arenal Village, Cayo District, when they spotted a suspicious Mitsubishi Galant car that was traveling on an unnamed street when they signaled it to stop, using flashlights.
The officers reported that instead of complying, the car began coming directly toward them, so a warning shot was fired and when the car still continued in their direction, the left front wheel was shot, causing the vehicle to come to a stop and that is when a male person from the passenger side got out, threw a large white looking ball shaped object and began running, accompanied by another male person from the back seat of the car.
Both runners were ordered to stop and they complied with the officers’ commands, so they, along with the driver and two other passengers that remained in the car, were escorted to there the object was thrown and it was opened in front of them.
Inside, officers saw a large amount of cannabis amounting to 4,228 grams when it was weighed at the police station in the presence of all persons and the mother of a 17 year old minor who was in the car at the time of the find.
All five occupants of the car were arrested and charged for the offense of “Drug Trafficking”, namely: 20 year old Dillen Dougal of Belize City, 18 year old John Garcia of San Ignacio, 32 year old Egbert Conorquie of Hattie Ville, 35 year old Anthony Conorquie of Belize City and 17 year old male minor of San Ignacio Town.
