36 pounds of weed; a city woman says she didn’t know it was in her house

Teresita Flores

A resident of Pelican Street Extension was taken to court late Wednesday evening after police found almost thirty-seven pounds of marijuana inside her house. There was an early morning raid at the home of thirty-three year old Teresita Elena Flores, during which the drugs were found inside a barrel of clothes. Flores was taken before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer and charged with Drug Trafficking. She pleaded not guilty and even though it was a large amount of drugs, Senior Magistrate Frazer tried to be lenient since Flores is a first time offender. But when asked why she should be granted bail, Flores claimed she had no knowledge of the weed in the barrel. Her response did not satisfy the Senior Magistrate and she was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until June twenty-second. Flores was told that being behind bars will give her time to think about her actions.

    “She was told that being behind bars will giver her time to think about her actions”… In other words, the magistrate denied bail in order to punish this woman for a crime she has not yet been convicted of committing! Whether or not the magistrate believes this woman did not know about the weed, she was only brought to court to be charged. I don’t believe the woman is innocent, but I think a much bigger crime is committed against our entire society when magistrates preside over a kangaroo court.

    They should let her go and focus on real crime in the city. After all it’s just grass.

    MAJ says: She is guilty as hell, why would she offer the Police Officer’s money? What she should do is talk up and don’t allow herself to continue been used as mule by the real drug dealer. The Court decision is applauded. We need to restore confidence in our judicial system. Criminals have too many rights even after they themselves continue to break the law.
