Castro associate Gian Espadas charged for 12 pounds of weed

Gian Espadas

Gian Espadas, friend and associate of the Castro Brothers, was charged with drug trafficking today. Twenty-two-year-old Espadas, a UB student of Belize City, was arraigned on a single charge of drug trafficking when he appeared in court today before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser. Espadas was represented by attorneys Leeroy Banner and Bryan Neal when he was read a charge for five point four-six kilograms of cannabis.  He pleaded not guilty to the charge, and with no objection to bail, he was granted bail of eight thousand dollars plus two sureties of four thousand dollars. Espadas was made to surrender his passport to the Clerk of Court and told not to leave the country without the court’s permission.  The charge comes as result of an interception made by police on Sunday. Police stopped a SUV in the West Landivar area and a search turned up with the twelve pounds of marijuana. As the occupant of the vehicle, Espadas was taken into custody and charged.
