Darren Pugh is Busted with Sugar City Weed

Darren Pugh

Twenty-six-year-old Darren Pugh was busted over the weekend in his hometown of Orange Walk with a serious stash of marijuana hidden at his residence.  According to police, a joint intelligence operation led them to Pugh’s home where a raid was conducted.  During the search officers unearthed two thousand, six hundred and thirty-seven grams of suspected cannabis.

“On Saturday, as well, sometime around 9:45 a.m., police, acting upon information, visited the home of one Darren Pugh on Riverside Street in Orange Walk Town where they conducted a search.  Pugh was the only occupant present at the time of the search and during the search police discovered five black plastic bags with suspected cannabis.  When weighed it amounted to two thousand, thirty-seven grams.  Pugh has since been arrested and charged for possession with intent to supply a controlled drug.”



“Sir, is it, that’s over five pounds, five and a half pounds.  Is there any indication that he is a major drug dealer in the Orange Walk area?  We know that a lot of the murders there have occurred because of gang rivalry over turf.”

“I would not be in a position to say that other than to say that he was charged with possession with intent to supply other than to have only been charged with drug trafficking.”
