Drug trial adjourned to July

This morning the trial of accused drug traffickers Jorge Moreno, Oscar Aguirre, Victor Carrasco and Zulema Molina got off to a late start and adjourned early. That left only an hour or so of court time, not enough for prosecution witness ASP David Henderson to be cross-examined. Henderson’s testimony revolved around the identification of the cocaine that was entered into evidence, as well as why Moreno was stopped on the night of October eighth, 2001. Henderson told the court that he stopped Moreno because he had been driving contrary to the flow of traffic. The trial, which started way back on January fifteenth, has been adjourned until July eighth. The four defendants, all Mexicans, are accused of trafficking over three thousand pounds of cocaine, the most ever confiscated by Belizean authorities.
