By BBN Staff: Over the weekend, police conducted searches on three passenger buses that led to the discovery of cannabis.
On Friday police conducted a search of a passenger bus in San Jose, Orange Walk. During that search officers found a pink bag containing 1037 grams of cannabis. In that same bag was an identification card belonging to Kimesha Locke.
As a result, she was detained and charged with drug trafficking.
On that same day, another search was conducted in another passenger bus which led to the discovery of 968 grams of cannabis.
Police were unable to pin it to anyone and so it was labeled as found property.
On Saturday another passenger bus was searched in San Jose, Orange Walk. This time cops found a bag between Julian and Neri Pott.
When they opened the bag, they found 6 parcels of cannabis weighing 3352 grams.
As such, both men were detained and charged with drug trafficking.
In recent times criminal elements have relied on public transportation to smuggle drugs across the country.
