By Breaking Belize News Staff: Three Ecuadorian nationals trying to reach the United States to reunite with friends and family, will not complete their journey after being busted in Belize illegally and sent to prison to serve time before being deported back home.

Martha Fabiola Cepeda Yumbo, Carmen Lucrecia Vinan Morocho, and Vidal Yucailla Yucailla appeared in court today and were each read a charge of entering Belize illegally. They reportedly did so through the banks of the Mopan River in Benque Viejo del Carmen on October 24.

They each pleaded guilty and were fined $1,000 plus $5 cost of court. Neither of them could pay and were instead sent to prison for two months. At the end of serving their time, they will be deported back to Ecuador.

The two women and man were on a passenger bus passing a police checkpoint at the Hattieville/Boom junction when a joint team of Immigration and police officials boarded the bus and requested documentation from passengers. The trio could not produce any papers and were escorted off the bus. It was later learned they were in the country illegally and they were arrested and charged.
