Belizean Smugglers Busted in Chetumal

Two alleged smugglers from Belize were arrested in Chetumal after they were caught along the bank of the Rio Hondo with multiple packages of clothing, tightly compressed in black plastic bags. According to a news post from Chetumal, during a routine check by Mexican authorities along the border with the Commercial Free Zone, a minivan with Corozal license plates was intercepted; thirty-six year old Christopher Cano and thirty-two year old Caesar Gonzales were inside the vehicle at the time. Both men attempted to escape, but were later apprehended miles away by authorities. Cano and Gonzales were then handed over to the Office of the Attorney-General in Chetumal. Further checks revealed that the vehicle contained three bales of clothing from the free zone. The men were attempting to smuggle the clothing into Belize.
