Former police officer Noel Codd is free of any drug charges tonight as police investigators are hoping to build a stronger case surrounding the recent plane landing on Monday, September 21 in the area of Santa Martha Village, Orange Walk District. Assistant Commissioner of Police Joseph Myvett spoke on the investigation and why the 40-year-old real estate agent was only given a charge for a single ammunition.
ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: “The investigation is still ongoing. No Noel Codd was not charged, he was released and the investigation still continues. I would say after what we had was submitted we needed further work so he was released pending further investigation.”
Reporter: Are you seeking any additional suspects ?
ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: “At this time I would not want to disclose that. I don’t think that the police rethinked their approach. What was gathered needed further evidence and clarification hence the reason for his release.”
Codd is being defended by Attorney Richard Dickie Bradley. In an interview with Bradley last week he told Love News that he is doubtful that any other charges would be laid as the plane landed about half mile from Codd’s house and there was no connection between his client, the drugs and the plane.
