By BBN Staff: An inmate at the Belize Central Prison was busted by a prison guard yesterday for reportedly smuggling illicit drugs inside the prison.
According to police, Oliver Peters, 40, was busted with 9 cigarette shaped joints. They were white and apparently wrapped with tape.
Police say the illicit drug amounted to 10 grams, which has been decriminalized in Belize, but is still restricted in prison and schools.
Peters was arrested and charged for drug trafficking.
