By Aaron Humes: He claims it was not his, but 70-year-old Harrison Mejia of Market Square, Belmopan, is cooling off his heels in Central Prison, Hattieville, serving a two-year stint for trafficking crack cocaine.

Magistrate Stephanie Gillett found the car washer guilty despite his telling the court that 85.6 grams (3.01 ounces) of crack did not belong to him.

Yet, police found it in a transparent plastic bag he had in his pants while searching him at a Chinese store here in the City.

Mejia, unrepresented, is a first-time offender and so was handed a much lighter sentence than is typical for drug trafficking. He was slapped with three (3) years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
