A report from the police confirm that on Thursday October 9th around 7:30pm, while at a check point at the Douglas Junction on the Philip Goldson Highway they intercepted a black with red stripe Nissan Exterra SUV.  Seemingly enroute to Orange Walk from the direction of Corozal, officials saw occupants of the vehicle throw a bag out of the vehicle. Police then went to pick up the item which was a brown and grey Jansport bag. The occupants were informed to pull over but instead sped off, heading in the direction of Orange Walk. The jansport bag was opened and observed inside was a block of green vegetable like substance, wrapped in transparent plastic suspected to be cannabis.  Attempts made to located said vehicle and occupants but fruitless.

The following day around 9am, the Nissan Extera was spotted at a tire repair shop in Trial Farm Village. Police quickly escorted 21-year-old Dominique Franklin of Smithsonia Street to the Police station along with the vehicle. A search was conducted on the vehicle where cannabis seeds and small particles were found on the floor of the vehicle.  The drugs were shown to him and weighed in his presence which amounted to 1500grams; it was sealed and labelled as exhibit. Following the series of events, Franklin was arrested and charged for the offence of Drug Trafficking.
