Belize_Police_Dept-BPDpolice_logoTwo persons from the Corozal District are facing the long arm of the law after being charged for drug trafficking. At around 11:30 yesterday morning Corozal Police conducted a search at the residence of Justin Opobouri located on 11th Avenue, Corozal Town.

 

Reports are that upon police entering the yard Opobouri ran out to the back yard with a black plastic bag in hand. One of the officers managed to catch up with Opobouri before he was able to throw the plastic bag over the neighbor’s yard.

 

The bag was found to contain 92.1 grams of cannabis and as such Opobouri was placed under arrest. While police searched the residence of the accused nothing incriminating was found. Also present at the time of the search was Tiffara Josephine Smith who along with Opobouri was escorted to the Corozal Police Station where they were jointly charged for drug trafficking. Since no magistrate was available today in Corozal, the accused were arraigned at the Orange Walk Magistrates Court this afternoon
