drugsCorozal Police made a big drug bust today after they searched a house located in the village of San Joaquin. At around 10:30 this morning Corozal Police executed a search warrant at the residence of 23 year old Farid Puck, a mechanic of San Joaquin Village. Present at the time of the search were Puck and his common-law wife, 17 year old Mexican national Maricarmen Zul Castro.
