Eleven pounds of marijuana in a Jetta, but occupants didn’t know

And in the Belmopan court, an electrician and a carpenter were charged with Drug Trafficking after allegedly being found with eleven and a half pounds of cannabis. The men, twenty-eight year old John Henry and thirty-one year old David Gabourel, were busted on Thursday at mile fifty-four on the Western Highway. They were travelling in a Volkswagen Jetta, which was searched and cops discovered the drugs hidden inside two crocus sacks. Initially, Henry pleaded guilty and just as he was about to be handed a three year sentence plus a ten thousand dollar fine, he changed his mind and pleaded not guilty. If Henry had taken the rap, the charge against Gabourel would have been withdrawn; instead both men were remanded to prison until April twentieth.

    Did he have a prescription with him? The poor things have glaucoma & were heading home to fix some herbal tea. If I was his passenger & unaware of his hustle, I would be pissed.

    Another scandal that will be swept into the garage dump of ignorance and forgotten by 6:30 p.m. tomorrow when the other newscast is aired. (tut,tut) “Where there is no vision, the people perish!’ Until Belizeans take a stance like the Egyptians and get rid of BOTH corrupt political parties (ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!) , they will continue to reap the bitter harvests of ignorance, complacency and cowardice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
