By BBN Staff: Sandhill resident, 42-year-old Emmerson Garcia is out on bail this week after being charged for drug trafficking.
Garcia appeared unrepresented in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, where he pleaded not guilty to two counts of possession of a control drug with intent to supply.
Police say they caught him in the act trying to dispose of a bag containing 79 grams of cannabis, and additionally found another bag containing 134 grams under his house, totalling less than half a pound.
The prosecution had no objection to bail, so it was granted to him in the sum of $2,500 plus one surety of the same amount which he was able to meet.
Garcia is due back in court on March 11, 2022.
