Occupant of taxi takes rap for bag of weed

Posted: Wednesday, January 31, 2024. 5:18 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: A taxi was intercepted by police over the weekend and four persons including the driver, two other men and a 14-year-old minor were charged jointly with possession of 86 grams of cannabis with intent to supply for trafficking.

Nigerian taxi man, Ipeghan Brother Woriboko, 47, a resident of Pickstock Street, Belize City; Stanley Alexander Flowers, 26, a Warehouse Attendant of Brown Street, Belize City; Glenford Lewis, 28, a resident of Gladden Street, Belize City, along with a 14-year-old female minor appeared in court on Tuesday and Lewis took ownership of the bag of weed, saying he bought it to take with him to the cayes for he and his friends to share.

According to Lewis, he also uses the marijuana for his asthma.

Despite all that, Lewis accepted the facts as read out in court and admitted to having the weed for supply to others.

The first time offender was imposed a non-custodial sentence of a fine of $600 plus cost of court for which he was given until April 30, 2024, to pay, in default, 3 months’ imprisonment. The charge was withdrawn from the other three defendants in light of Lewis’ guilty plea.
