During an anti-drug operation that was conducted this morning in Pomona Village in the Stann Creek district, Dangriga police have arrested and charged two persons for drug related offences. Police here say that about 7:30 am they conducted a search at the residence of 50 year old Martha Chaveria a vendor of the village where they found 74 grams of suspected cannabis in a black plastic bag that was hidden under a bed. Also at the time of the operation was 28 year old Juan Chaveria who was found with 1.5 grams of cannabis on his person. As a result both persons were charged for drug trafficking and an additional charge for possession was slapped on Juan. Meanwhile in the Back ah town area of Dangriga, police also discovered a black plastic bag that contained some 312 grams of cannabis in an empty lot this morning. No one was in the area at the time of the search so the contents of the bag was labelled as found property.”
