But what landed Ruiz in jail in the first place. Well, this is his story. Ruiz and 33 year old Jose Nah of Altamira Area Corozal were waiting to be charged for drug related issues. On Monday November 4th, at about 12:30 pm, police visited Mamey Street, Halls Layout Area, Corozal Town, where they saw two male persons standing in a backyard. Reports are that upon sighting officers one of the male persons threw an object on the ground.
As a result both male individuals later identified as Nah and Ruiz were escorted to the area where the object was thrown. This led police to the discovery of some scattered green leafy vegetable substance suspected to be cannabis. A further search in the area led authorities to a small black plastic bag containing suspected cannabis.
The suspected drugs weighed a total of 24.6 grams. Both men were detained pending charges but as you know tonight Ruiz is on the run.
