Man pleads not guilty to obstruction charge after allegedly eating weed plant in front of police

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Coury Recardo Malcom, a 46-year-old construction worker of a Casaurina Street address in Belize City, has been granted bail after pleading not guilty to obstruction after he allegedly ate a 4-inch weed tree in the presence of police officers to avoid arrest.

Appearing unrepresented before the Belize City Magistrate’s Court, Malcom faced a single charge of obstruction. Police allege that on May 11, 2024, at his residence, Malcom obstructed a serving member of the Belize Police Department, DC#2408 Travis Zuniga, during the execution of his duties.

Malcom, who was given police bail and allowed to walk to court, entered a plea of not guilty before a Senior Magistrate in Court #2. Bail was granted without objection, set at $600 plus one surety of the same amount, which Malcom promptly met. His next court appearance is scheduled for July 1, 2024.

According to police reports, during a search of Malcom’s residence on May 11, conducted on the strength of a search warrant, officers found a Nestlé Milk container with what appeared to be a cannabis plant. When shown the plant, Malcom allegedly uprooted it and consumed it in front of the officers, leading to his arrest and subsequent charge of obstruction.
