Nigerian arrested for trafficking heroin

A Nigerian has been arrested for allegedly smuggling and selling what police describe as a large amount of heroin. Police tell News Five John Amah entered the country through the northern border on Monday and was staying at a Belize City hotel. Yesterday morning an undercover police officer offered to purchase the drugs during a sting operation. Amah reportedly agreed and was paid fifteen thousand dollars cash for the undisclosed amount of heroin. He was promptly arrested and the money recovered.
