Guatemalan arrested at weed plantation

A Guatemalan has been arrested in connection with a number of marijuana plantations discovered on the Old Northern Highway. Twenty-six year old Ostilo Garcia of Trial Farm in Orange Walk has been charged with cultivation of marijuana in Magistrate’s Court after he was found in the area of the illegal farms several miles from Santa Marta Village.

In related news, it is believed that drugs were also involved in the death of another Guatemalan, named Kevin, whose decomposed body was unearthed last week in the same area. Sources attribute the discovery of the large weed plantation by police to a tip provided by angry associates of Kevin.
