The Orange Walk Police Formation Quick Response Team conducted a search on Friday at about 7:45 p.m. in the Village of San Felipe, in a bushy area located approximately 2 to 3 miles from the village. The search led to the discovery of a black jumbo garbage bag containing 8 black in color plastic bags with green leafy substances suspected to be Cannabis. Since no one was in the area at the time of the search, police took the bag to the station where it was weighed. The bag contained a total of 12lbs of Cannabis and was labeled as found property.
This morning at about 11:12, authorities were called out to an area located on Savannah Street here in Orange Walk Town where they found twelve 16 gage cartridges that were buried under some bushes. Given that no one was in the area, the cartridges were also labeled as found property. As a result of the aggressive anti-drug, firearm and traffic campaign, police arrested and charged a total of five persons for possession of controlled drugs, seven persons for traffic offences and a total of six individuals for driving under the influence of alcohol.
