A search of the vehicle led to ten twin bundles of suspected cannabis, weighing twenty-three pounds. Police Officer Cima and four other persons inside the vehicle were arrested.

“Corozal police was on operation between miles seventy-seven and seventy-eight on the Philip Goldson Highway where they stopped a silver in color double cab pickup truck at the time driven by one Stephanie Patnett Cima, a police officer, and she was accompanied by Leidy Hall, Alexia Burns, Anne Marie Burns and a sixteen-year-old all of Orange Walk Town. A search of the vehicle, led to the discovery of ten parcels of suspected cannabis weighing a total of twenty three point four pounds. Those persons have all been arrested and charged for possession with intent to supply a control drug and based on further follow up investigation police also arrested a male person known as Berris Anglin, forty-two-year-old, of a Orange Walk Town address jointly along with those persons.”

“Now, sir, Miss Cima was driving her husband’s vehicle and that seems important because he is assigned to the QRP that chases drug planes, does that have anything to do, in your opinion, with how she got these drugs?”

 

ACP Joseph Myvett

“I don’t want to go into the details to say that that is the case because if you notice her husband wasn’t charged.”

 

Reporter

“Sir, any further disciplinary action?”

 

ACP Joseph Myvett

“Certainly, there will be.”

 

Reporter

“Any idea who she was transporting the drugs to, sir?”

 

ACP Joseph Myvett

“At this point we do not know.”
