Women busted trying to smuggle weed into prison

Elisa Chan

Lisa Alvarez

There are several measures in place at the Central Prison to deter visitors from introducing illegal items into the prison. But that did not stop twenty-four year old Elisa Chan who was busted with almost three ounces of cannabis when she was searched in the waiting area. Chan was charged late this evening and pleaded not guilty to Drug Trafficking. Magistrate Albert Hoare released her on bail of five thousand dollars and she is due back before the court on September sixteenth. Last Friday, another woman, Lisa Eileen Alvarez, was also busted allegedly trying to smuggle weed into the prison. She too was searched in the waiting area and prison officials found with over six ounces of weed hidden inside food she was bringing to an inmate. Alvarez is also out on bail.

    Belizean women are now commiting more crimes than I care to mention here.
    Why give these people bail at all, when they deserve jail time instead.

    This is what’s wrong with that country, no sacrifices are being made, even in this state of emergency.

    Ladies, there is no piece worth jail time or a hefty fine.

  4. rod says:

    they need to send a message to all these people who feel like they can do crimes and get away with it i say send both of them to jail for at least 3yrs come on judges start doing your jobs or maybe we belizeans need to hold a referendom to grade our judges and if you are not performing your job we will get rid of you.

    Maybe GOB should impliment a system that if someone get caught smuggling drugs into the prison that they automatically get thrown into a cell at the prison until their trial date comes up.It ashame what these two beautiful loosers have done to themselves.

  9. Elgin Martinez says:

    Lisa look so frighten like y mi just bun wah tubumbu.

  10. Elgin Martinez says:

    My Belizean sisters need to tell me what these criminals in the prison are doing to them that they are more than willing to jeoperdize their freedom for these loosers.

    Belize women use to have a lot of pride, now a man dumb enough to go to jail can have them do stupid things like get a criminal record. Your man is already introuble and you want to keep him a drug addict.

  12. Es says:

    Stupid, Stupid, Stupid. Go join him Fool.

  13. So Disappointed says:

    How desperate are Belize women for a man that they will go to prison to keep him happy this is beyond stupid this is desperation at it’s highest. Women no D..k is that good NONE wake up and get some pride. Pleeease put them in the cell with the man so they can be happy obviously that is their life.

  14. Proud says:

    I agree Elgin. No bail for drug charges….hopefully then the Zetas will end up in jail too.

  15. Earl Grey says:

    BAIL SHOULD BE GIVEN FOR NON-VIOLENT CRIMES. The Zetas would run the jail.

  16. kev says:

    mi jailbird husband di beg fi wah lee weed i cant say no i love him…………..
    when will they learn

  17. Elgin Martinez says:

    Is there a man shortage in Belize that these young ladies are risking their freedom to join their fiance behind bars?


    There was always a man shortage in belize, two, three woman for one man and these days with the GUN incorperation,more men are falling dead like flies.

  19. GrandMASW says:

    Elisa, If these allegations are true…..I am appalled. You have a beautiful daughter that needs you and loves you…should you be found guilty and sent to prison for this crime….you daughter will be without a mother, so for your daughter’s sake, I hope you are found not guilty of this crime as you have plead.
