Updated: March 2, 2017

More than fifteen pounds of cannabis was confiscated by Belmopan Police yesterday morning. It happened at around 9:30 when the Quick Response teams intercepted a man on a blue motorcycle in Teakettle Village, Cayo District. That man was 21 year old Freddy Rene Sosa and police say he was carrying a white sack. When Sosa saw police he sped off and the quick response team set chase. During the chase, Sosa reportedly threw away the white sack; he was later captured and the sack recovered. In the sack police found three compressed parcels of cannabis weighing 6810 grams or 15 pounds. Sosa was charged with possession of controlled drugs with the intent to supply to another.
