Rice, beans and marijuana on platter of food taken to prison

Lyle Lambey

It’s a trick that has played out many times and the perpetrators have been caught as many times. A Ministry of Works employee who went to visit an old childhood friend at the Belize Central Prison is in trouble with the law because officials there allege they found weed stashed in one of five plates of food he took to the facility. Twenty-two year-old Lyle Lambey, of Faber’s Road appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer and was charged with one count of drug trafficking. Lambey pleaded not guilty to the charge and told the Senior Magistrate that he was only doing a favor for a friend who gave him the food to deliver, but he failed to check it.  Prison officials report that when they searched Lambey, they found eleven parcels of suspected cannabis in a plate of food, which was allegedly provided by the girlfriend of Lambey’s childhood friend who is on remand for a murder.

    You can give a brother a job…but you can’t make him THINK. Does Boots have to whip your @$$ too? The man is out there trying to convince us that if you only had jobs, you’d behave. Stop making him look like a liar. So your friend has a voracious appetite & needed 5 plates of food, I hear weed does that to a boy. Now his home cooked food is gone & you’re out of a job.

    Maybe it’s time the prison stopped allowing food from the outside, limit access to prisoners & maybe they would have enough personnel on hand to escort convicted murderers to the dental appointments they should not have instead of checking these idiots & their packages for contraband.

    Look at his T-Shirt Mr Grumpy seems unhappy and angry about what Lyle Lambey has done. And Lyle Lambey looks so sad because Mr Grumpy on his T-Shirt looks like he’s angry with Lyle Lambey. LOL This picture is priceless. Good Job Channel 5 at getting the money shot


    Let this animal spend the rest of his life in prison with his friend for disrespecting the law.
    After all the trickery to get drugs into the system, food should no longer be allowed to be taken into the system, let the animals eat the crappy food Belizean are paying tax money for.

    Lol @ Say What?…But on a serious note i’m sure Lyle knew about the weed that was in the food. He really doesn’t look too happy that he was caught…lol, he knew what he was getting himself into, for every choice or decision you make there is ALWAYS a consequence for it whether it is good or bad…so lyle you did the crime brother now you must do the time.

    Make sure you check your charge sheet to ensure that the Magistrate gave you the right charge.

    Another idiot when will we learn, you go to prison you are on your own until you are out. It would be good to stop visitation and maybe those that go there will think twice as they will see no one. For that Idiot, put him in prison and release his friend.

    That’s the price you pay for stupidity!!! Whenever a crucial example is made of one of the many people caught trying to smuggle drugs or anything illegal into the prison, then others will be dissuaded from taking the chance. By crucial example I mean, quick trial and mandatory maximum jail time for drug trafficking. In addition to time imposed by the prison authorities. Then again, I know for a fact that 3/4 of the many illegal stuff circulating in the prison is smuggled in by the corrupted prison officials wo are underpaid and doing a little hustle on the side. Among that of which I speak is cocaine and firearms. When I lived in Belize, I worked there as an office assistant for 4 years and it’s appalling the amount of corruption and injustice that goes on behind those walls. I finally decided to quit after I couldn’t make a difference. Thinking of writing a book about the experience. People would die from shock if they really knew the behind the scene stories of Hattieville Department of Corruptions.

    He could afford $6,000.00 bail, yet denied that he was smuggling drugs???? Yeah, right!

    WITH A PRISON FARM IN TOLEDO…………..THIS STUFF WOULD BE HAPPENING A LOT LESS….because it would not be an easy trip.

    Kolbe is too close to Belize City…………BUILD THE PRISON FARM IN TOLEDO.
