“Yesterday, again Tuesday the sixth of September, while police were patrolling the San Lorenzo Housing Site area, they saw a suspicious male person carrying ad red and white ice cooler. Police approached the person, asked him what was in there and he said nothing. When they opened it, they saw it contained green vegetable substance suspected to be marijuana. The suspected drugs and male person were thereafter escorted to the Orange Walk Police Station where the drugs were weighed in his presence totaling five hundred and fifty grams of cannabis. The person will be arrested and charged for drugs trafficking later on today.”

“Is he known to police as a dealer or for the trafficking of drugs? Has he come up in your system?”

“As I said, prior to yesterday, we didn’t know him as such person involved in much of that.”
