corozalA man from the Corozal District has been arrested and charged for drug trafficking after police conducted a search at his residence. He is no other than 49 year old Wilbert Pedro Hernandez, Belizean businessman of #10 Narcist Street, Altamira area, Corozal Town. Hernandez’s home was searched yesterday at around 7:10p.m and there police found a black plastic bag containing 118 grams of Cannabis. CTV3 News understand that Hernandez appeared before the Corozal Magistrates Court this morning to answer to the charge of drug trafficking but instead of pleading guilty to that charge he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of possession of controlled drugs. But because Hernandez has had prior convictions of the same nature his plea was not accepted and was charged for drug trafficking. He was offered bail of $1,000 which he met. His next court date will be on the 22nd of December 2015.
