Orange Walk Police were moderately busy over the weekend as they responded to crimes in progress and continue to come up successful on searches that have yielded drugs from off the streets. But before we get into those stories we’ll tell you about a hit and run accident on Saturday night that claimed the life of a Mennonite and resident of Santa Martha Village in the Orange Walk District. Officer Commanding the Orange Walk Formation, Superintendent Dennis Arnold, says they are pleading to the community for information that would lead to the driver of the cane truck which killed forty year old David Thiessen.
