Cruise tourist gets extended stay after being busted with weed
He came to Belize from San Francisco aboard a cruise liner to spend a few happy hours, but an American tourist will have more of Belize than he bargained for if he cannot come up with twelve hundred dollars fast enough to avoid life at the Hattieville Ramada. Today twenty five year old Steven Capepanakis pleaded guilty to drug possession after he was nabbed on Tuesday afternoon with eight point nine grams of marijuana. The tourist reportedly dropped the drugs while boarding a tender boat that would have transported him to the cruise ship, scheduled to leave minutes later. A police officer who was on duty at the dock saw when the substance dropped out of his pants pocket, retrieved it, and detained Capepanakis. Up to this evening, Capepanakis could not meet the fine and will be kept in custody until he does, or, he will spend seven months vacationing at the Hattieville Prison.
