Belize City Resident Charged with Drug Trafficking

Aaron Lindo

In the lower courts, twenty-nine-year-old Aaron Lindo was arraigned for the crime of drug trafficking. Lindo, who was unrepresented, appeared before Magistrate Emmerson Banner and pleaded not guilty to trafficking over five pounds of weed.  He was granted bail of five thousand dollars plus a surety of the same amount. But before posting bail, Lindo had to clear up a previous debt of six hundred and ten dollars owed to the court.  On Friday night, police intercepted Lindo while he was on a B.B.O.C. bus travelling from Corozal to Belize City; he was found with five point seven pounds of marijuana divided into three parcels and wrapped in a plastic bag. Police say they received a tip and when police officers boarded the bus noticed Lindo acting suspicious. The drugs were found in the storage space above him.
