By Chrisbert Garcia: An Orange Walk man was arrested and charged for drug trafficking on Saturday afternoon, when he was found with 260 grams of cannabis, which is just a little more than half a pound.
Police visited Luis Cardenas’ residence in the Pasadita area of Orange Walk town around 12:10 that day, where they saw 43-year-old Sergio Valdez standing at the back door of the house.
Upon seeing officers, Valdez threw away a black plastic bag which was retrieved and opened in front of him, containing the cannabis. As a result, he was arrested and charged accordingly.
