Noel Codd is Re-detained, while Mennonite Man is Released

Though there were no drugs to be found where the drug plane landed, a number of items were confiscated by police from the area. Codd was rearrested after he was charged. Shipyard resident, Isaac Petka, was also detained for alleged facilitation of the landing of a plane in an unregistered aerodrome. But charges are also yet to be laid so this afternoon; Petka was released from custody, while Codd remains in detention at the Orange Walk Police Station.  Of the six persons that were initially detained following the plane landing, only Codd is being held. Attorneys Dickie Bradley and Marcel Cardona question why their client is being singled out.

“Stop chance people. Follow di law cause when dehn win yo hear di lawyer dehn this and the lawyer dehn that. Follow the law and if you have the evidence, the court will convict. Isn’t that unfair that Noel Codd has workers in a big farm like that with all kinda people di trample too. The police know that there were people from Mexico who was there; they got the evidence from the people who were under…why dehn let dehn go? Why dehn gone home?”


Marcel Cardona, Attorney

“Precisely and I can confirm that. The other clients were my clients and that was their evidence to the police.”
