policeOn Friday 20th of March 2015, at about 11:00am, members of the Orange Walk Quick Response Team were conducting a mobile patrol on Royal Palm Street, Orange Walk Town, when they spotted a Silver Kia car speeding off from in front of a house known to sell drugs.


Police set chase after the vehicle and caught up with the driver on Liberty Avenue.

The passenger of the vehicle identified herself as Lavern Herrera Trujillo, Belizean housewife of Caracol Street, Orange Walk Town. She immediately told police that she had about three ounces but it was for her to put in alcohol.


Trujillo then handed over to authorities a black plastic bag containing green leafy substance consistent with marijuana. As a result she was placed under arrest and escorted to the Orange Walk Police Station where the drugs were weighed and amounted 114.0 grams.


Back then Trujillo was formally charged for drug trafficking. But on her arraignment day on the 20th March 2015, she plead not guilty. Today though, she changed that plea as she reappeared in court. Trujillo pled guilty to Drug Possession Simplicitor, it was accepted by the court and she was charged $2000.00 to be paid by the ending of December 2015 or in default spend 6 months imprison.
