Three charged but one pleads guilty in marijuana border bust

A trio of men was busted with a significant quantity of marijuana in the Corozal District on Saturday.  Twenty-one-year-old Ian Mossiah, twenty-five-year-old Vincent Aldana and thirty-seven-year-old Abner Cardenas were nabbed in an area known as Estero, reportedly a transshipment point for the passage of Mexican-grown weed into the country.  The men were arraigned before the Corozal Magistrate’s, where Mossiah pleaded guilty to drug trafficking.  He was fined ten thousand dollars and was required to pay three hundred dollars upfront.  Mossiah was also ordered to pay three hundred dollars monthly until the sum has been paid in full.

“Corozal police conducted a search on a vehicle, they were on routine patrol, where three male persons were found.  Also a search conducted on the vehicle led to the discovery of three thousand, six hundred and twenty-eight grams of cannabis.  They are presently at the station and will be charged sometime today for them to appear at the magistrate’s court sometime later on this evening.”

“So obviously that area is where the transshipment of drugs from Mexico to Belize, across the river, appears that it is quite persistent at this time.”

 

ASP Alejandro Cowo

“Yes it is.”

Reporter

“Inevitably.”

 

Charges were subsequently withdrawn against Cardenas and Aldana.
