Orange Walk Police continue in their efforts to remove drugs from the streets of our town. Their latest operation conducted on major hot stops throughout town led to the discovery of two separate busts amounting to almost two thousand grams of cannabis.
The first was discovered sometime around 8:30 on Friday night as the Quick Response Team conducted a search of an unfinished concrete structure on Rio Grande Street. A quick search of the building led police to the discovery of a total of 515 grams of the drug.
Later at about 12:45, while continuing with operations throughout town police conducted a search in an overgrown lot situated on Palmar Boundary Road where they found a bucket containing 1,325 grams of cannabis.
Since no one was found in the area at the time of the discovery the drugs were deposited as found property.
