Minister’s son charged for marijuana possession

The son of a minister was spared jail time today after he was criminally charged before the Courts. Around two-thirty this afternoon, a son of Minister Edmund “Clear the Land” Castro was escorted in cuffs to the Belize City Family Court and was read a single charge of Possession of a Control Drugs. The minor appeared unrepresented before Magistrate Margaret Nicholas where he pleaded not guilty to the possession of two grams of cannabis which police say they found on him around sixty-thirty this morning on Freetown Road. Castro’s son was given bail in the sum of five hundred dollars plus one surety of the same amount which he was able to meet. The charge was read to him in the presence of his mother. He is due back in court on April seventeenth.
