By Chrisbert Garcia: While arriving at the residence of 24-year-old Edwin Antonio Ortega Santos in the Las Flores area of Belmopan City, to conduct a search for drugs, police saw three men of Hispanic descent jumping through a window in an attempt to escape.
The men were captured by officers who then searched the house and discovered a shotgun along with four cartridges and more than a half-pound of cannabis (239 grams). As a result, Santos and the three men are pending charges for unlicensed firearm, as well as drug possession.
