By BBN Staff: A 49 year old businessman from Camalote village, Cayo district, was arrested and charged for the possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply another.
The charge is the result of an operation conducted by the Belmopan Quick Response Team (QRT) and Belmopan’s Special Branch. Based on intelligence received, the joint team intercepted a gray in color four door Toyota Sequoia on Trinity Boulevard in Belmopan on Wednesday, October 13, 2021. The vehicle was driven at the time by Orlando Pascasio.
A search of the vehicle was conducted and police found a black shopping bag containing five (5) rectangle shaped parcels wrapped with transparent plastic bag inside the back portion of the vehicle. The bags contained a white powdery substance suspected to be cocaine. The suspected drugs were weighed at the Belmopan police Station and the packages were found to contain a total of 5,300 grams (or 5.3kg) of suspected cocaine.
The businessman, Orlando Pascasio, is now awaiting a court date to answer to his charge.
