F.F.B. Vice President taken to New York to Face Narcotics Conspiracy

During the Jaguars time in the Gold Cup Games played in three U.S. cities, the Football Federation of Belize suffered a slight embarrassment when one of its players was denied entry and sent back to Belize because on a previous trip to the U.S., he stayed longer than the time prescribed on his visa. But when the executive members took flight to join the team in Portland, the F.F.B. Vice President Rawell Pelayo was whisked away by Drug Enforcement Agency at the Houston Airport. Pelayo was initially taken to the Federal Detention Center in Houston, but he has now been transferred to the Southern District of New York where he faces charges of Conspiracy to Transport Narcotics. The F.F.B. and Pelayo’s family say that they are unaware of his fate ever since he went to the U.S.A.  We’ll continue following the saga as it progresses because our information is that there are other Belizeans on the D.E.A. list.

    tried-and-true dea mo: show him what they have on him and tell him he faces 60 years total, but if he ‘cooperates’ that can be pared down to 10 years. with good behavior, he can be “back home with your family” in two and a half years. He sings like a boid. the dea now has the goods on ten more people and all options are on the table, including rendition. @moses EX PC We watch too much TV?

    I hate to say this but it is the truth, and many Belizean knows it. You have a lot of Political involvement in the trafficking of Drugs, People and other illegal activities.
    Both UDP and PUP when in Government is the only way that they can come to the USA under a diplomat Visa. Yes, we all know that the DEA knows who they are, even in Mexico they are not safe, as the CIA or the FBI can pick them up at any time,( as those guys from the north who was picke-up in Chetumal.) Drugs fund a large part of the moneys spent on being elected. I will not say names but they better watch out as the US gov., will clean Belize of these people. and I hope very fast.

    What these drug traffickers don’t realize is that the Feds don’t guess, they take all the time in the world to do a proper investigation so whenever they hold you there is substantial amount of evedience againts you to have You locked up for a long time.. He should had known better you just don’t flood drugs into the U.S and don’t pay the penalty..

  5. only in BZE says:

    It will be interesting to read the long list of Belizeans that they have on the list. Like I said before you cant cover the sun with one finger. Too bad the drugdealers already know so they will avoid going out of Belize.

    how is that McAfee murder indictment coming?
    make it and ask for extradition, it works both ways.

    he is a nutcase, but it appears GOB can’t make the case, as usual.
    or perhaps something else…
