Joseph Myvett

Two Guatemalan nationals are in trouble with immigration tonight after they were detained over the weekend in the Calla Creek area in western Belize. Humberto Munroy and Ervin Garcia, both residents of Melchor De Mencos, Guatemala were found travelling in a Toyota pickup truck carrying forty cases of uncustomed insecticide. Police say they were nabbed around eleven a.m. on Sunday and could not produce any customs documents for the insecticide.

At the time, the pickup was located with forty cases of Rezpet insecticide for which they could not produce any customs document.
