Screen_Shot_2015-11-23_at_7.56.33_PMA teacher from Belize City has been charged for possession of controlled drugs with the Intent to supply to another after he was busted with crack cocaine. He is no other than 35 year old Melvin Newton Hewlett, a teacher and vice principal of Wesley College.


Reports are that Hewlett and another individual only described as a known drug peddler, were seen  standing on the street side in front of Wesley College. That is when Officers of the Gang Suppression Unit decided to search the drug peddler but as the GSU approached the individual, Hewlett was seen throwing away a piece of white paper into Wesley College’s compound.


As a result, police escorted Hewlett to the area where the white paper was retrieved and found to contain two transparent plastic bags each containing buff bulky substance suspected to be crack cocaine amounting to 14 grams.

Based on the finding Hewlett was arrested and charged for the crime of possession of controlled drugs with the intent to supply to another. We understand that the school’s management is yet to comment on the teacher’s arrest.
