4_drug_dealersLate this evening, a major heroin drug bust in Corozal Town was detected by members of the Corozal formation and anti-drug Unit. As a result, four persons were arrested and pending charges from their investigation. While details are sketchy, police arrested 32 year old Jose Antonio Lara, fisherman and tour guide of San Pedro Town, 30 year old Lenon Leonardo Tillett, BEL contractor of Belize City, 42 year old Gerardo Beraldo Allen, tour guide of Caye Caulker and 35 year old Heirder Martin Perez, administrative assistant of San Pedro Town. Perez had in his possession a licenced 9mm pistol Springfield Brand firearm with 13 live rounds of Aguila brand ammunition.

 

The drugs were found in their bags on the back seat of a white Chevrolet Tahoe 4 door they were travelling in. The Anti-Drug Unit we understand stopped the vehicle near Corozo Blues located near the entrance of Corozal Town. At the station, the drugs were weighed in their presence and amounted to 15 parcels of suspected Heroin, totalling 19.621 Kilograms. The street value of the drugs is unknown at this time but we’ll have more on this story in our subsequent newscast.
