Two men and two women who were remanded into custody after they were charged with drug and ammunition offences, were released on bails of twenty-five thousand dollars each that was offered to them today by Justice Marilyn Williams. They are Kenyon Lewis, Phylmore King, Blancaneux Maudel and her sister, Michelle Benguche. They were charged with drug trafficking for 20,470 grams of cannabis, importation of a controlled drug and possession of 28 rounds of .380 caliber ammunition without a gun license. They were arraigned last Thursday in Corozal Magistrate’s Court. According to the allegation, Lewis was driving a Kia car with King in the passenger seat, while Maudel was driving a Ford Escape with Benguche in the passenger seat when they were busted at Belize’s northern border with Mexico. The police reported that when they searched the spare tire for the Ford Escape they found the ammunition and 24 parcels of cannabis. The police also reported that when they searched the spare tire of the Kia they found 12 parcels of cannabis. Both vehicles had just crossed the border from Chetumal into Corozal. The four were represented by attorney Arthur Saldivar. The Crown was represented by Senior Crown Counsel Sheneiza Smith.
