By BBN Staff: Dangriga resident, Keenan Flores, 23, was jailed since July 31, after he was busted with what appeared to be 2.2 kilos of cocaine.

However, when he appeared before Magistrate Aretha Ford on Wednesday, the charge of drug trafficking was withdrawn and he was freed.

That is because when the Forensic Department tested the substance purported to have been cocaine, it was simply sugar.

The Amandala Newspaper reported that a police source indicated that Flores had intended to sell the fake cocaine to a drug dealer.

Flores was originally charged on Sunday, July 30 when police searched a vehicle parked in front of a house he was staying.

Inside the back of the vehicle, police found the substance wrapped up in a plastic bag.
