By BBN Staff: This week, a prison guard busted at the Belize Central Prison with marijuana on him walked out of court a free man due to an issue with his charge.
Police say that they caught Twenty-four-year-old Erland Arnold with 5 grams of marijuana at the prison and charged him for possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply to another.
At his arraignment in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, his case was struck out as the Magistrate explained that police charged him under Section 73-74 of the Misuse of Drugs Act, which speaks to busts made on a school compound and not a facility such as the Belize Central Prison.
