Orange Walk Police have confiscated quite an amount of drugs over the last days. In the first report, police were conducting a patrol on Tuesday this week on the Yo Creek/San Lazaro Road when they intercepted two Hispanic male persons. Both men were riding a motorcycle and when stopped officers noticed that one of the passengers pushed his left hand in his left front pocket and pulled out a shiny object and threw it to a side. Police retrieved the item which was an aluminum foil and opened in the presence of the men.
Authorities found it to contain a powdery white substance suspected to be cocaine. Both men were informed of the offense and detained. They are fifty-six year old Alfredo Antonio Perez, a Mexican Laborer of Botes Quintana Roo in Mexico and fifty-year old Leonardo Gonzalez of San Lazaro Village. The drug weighed a total of 6.5 grams. Both men were charged with drug trafficking but since Perez took full responsibility, he was the only one remanded to prison.
