By BBN Staff: Three men were taken before the court on a charge of drug trafficking this week, but one of them pleaded guilty to the charge so the others could go free.

Twenty-one-year-old, Brandon Faber, was along with 31-year-old Warren Davis, and 25-year-old Marlon Samuels in a yard in Belize City on Monday when police conducted a search and found 270 grams (just over a half-pound) of marijuana in a container under a house.

In court, Faber tried pleading guilty to simple possession; however, he was informed that the amount of drugs found was too high for him to plea out to the lesser offense. He then pleaded guilty to drug trafficking but instead of sentencing him to prison time, Magistrate Khiana Gordon imposed a fine of $3,500 plus a $5.00 cost of court fine of which he must pay by January 28, 2022nin default, six months imprisonment.
