marijuanaBy BBN Staff: Over the weekend, police in San Pedro and Belize City conducted operations which netted a total of 84.85 pounds of cannabis that was all deposited as “found property”.

On Friday morning around 6:15 in an area behind Belize City’s Supreme Court building, police were given a black plastic bag that was found by a fisheries officer floating in the Belize River. Inside the bag was 3709 grams of cannabis (8.2 pounds).

The following day in San Pedro at around 8:00 a.m., police were called to a beach front in the DFC Area of that municipality where they were shown a black plastic bag containing four parcels of cannabis which amounted to a total weight of 74.85 pounds.

Later that same day at Belize Express Terminal’s Cargo Section in San Pedro, officers found a pink gift box containing 28 small transparent bags of cannabis amounting to 833.8 grams (1.8 pounds).

No arrests were made since no owners could be linked to any of the finds.
