At six on Wednesday, officers recovered 88 grams of cannabis from an empty lot on Sittee River Street, Orange Walk Town; this was deposited as found property as no one was in the area.
Three hours later on Jamaica Street, police located a transparent plastic bag within which was hidden 45 transparent bags containing up to 7.2 grams of cocaine each, and a second bag within which were three transparent plastic bags containing 8.4 grams of crack cocaine each, hidden under a septic tank. This too is classified as found property.
