ASP Alejandro Cowo, Belize City Police: “San Ignacio Police visited Casa Maya Road in the Shawville area where they conducted a search in an open lot and as a result they found five big plastic bags containing suspected cannabis. The bags were taken to the station and were weighted and it amounted to almost 72 pounds of suspected cannabis. No one was in the area at the time. Police has an idea more or less who the amount of cannabis might have belonged to.”
