Drug traffickers are very creative with the methods they use to ship illegal substances. But now it seems they are using a successful and old method but instead of adults, they are using minors as mules. Officers from San Ignacio had set up a checkpoint on the George Price Highway on July 12. At 8:30 on Thursday morning they searched a bus that was traveling from the direction of San Ignacio heading towards Belmopan. They saw a minor acting suspiciously and decided to search him. The 17 year old minor had a knapsack containing 260.1 grams of cannabis. The minor was arrested and in the presence of his guardian he was
charged for drug trafficking.
