Guilty plea for man charged with uncustomed goods

Meanwhile, in the Orange Walk Court, thirty-eight year old Rangel Canul and thirty year old Felipe Correa had to answer to charges for Uncustommed Goods. They were busted in July 2010 and initially pleaded guilty to the charge. But after a testimony from Customs Officer, Jose Garcia earlier today, Canul took responsibility for the crime. For his guilty plea, Canul was fined seventy-one thousand eight hundred and seventy-eight dollars. The men were driving a Dakota pickup between Orange Walk and Corozal when they were intercepted and searched by Customs officers. Inside the vehicle were twenty-two cases of Monster energy drink, two cases of whiskey, six cases of Benson and Hedges cigarettes and a single bottle of whiskey. Magistrate Aretha Ford also ruled that the vehicle is to be forfeited to the government of Belize.
