By Breaking Belize News Staff: A 68-year-old man from Sandhill Village is serving his first night of a sentence at the Belize Central Prison tonight, after being convicted of drug trafficking.

Robert Galvez appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court yesterday, charged with three counts of possession of controlled drugs with intent to supply to another in relation to two separate quantities of marijuana (567 grams, and 117 grams) as well as 3 grams of crack cocaine.

Galvez was initially charged with his common-law wife but changed his not-guilty plea to guilty, and the charges were withdrawn from her.

The Court told Galvez that the current conviction represents his 8th such conviction for drug trafficking and as such he would be sentenced to a total of 17 months for the three offenses, but since they will run concurrently, he will only spend 9 months.

Police found the drugs at Galvez’s home during a raid on May 26, 2020.
