By Aaron Humes: The quiet of a Friday morning in San Victor Village, Corozal was disrupted by the arrival of Police Commissioner Chester Williams and his band of officers to lay down the law.
San Victor has long been one of the worst offenders in relation to contraband along the Mexican border.
Now it has been exacerbated by the spread of COVID-19, which has claimed thousands of lives globally.
Police have sworn ‘zero tolerance’ for contraband and on his visits to some residences, Wiliams made clear that under the State of Emergency regulations, stepping a foot across the Rio Hondo will cost 5 thousand dollars, 2 years in prison, or both.
A joint police and military group is being made active to enforce these regulations.
Those he spoke to said they would cooperate as long as the authorities showed them respect.
We will have more as it develops.
