Guatemalan National Remanded for Crack Cocaine Possession in Belize

A Guatemalan national has been remanded to the Belize Central Prison after being found with crack cocaine. Twenty-five-year-old Edwin Ayala appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court today, charged with a single count of possession of controlled drugs concerning one gram of crack cocaine. Ayala, who was unrepresented, pleaded not guilty to the charge, however, he was unable to give the court an address for his residence. He also said that a family member has his passport and that he is in the process of legalizing his stay in Belize. He was remanded to prison until December 22, allowing him to verify his address and legal status. If he can do so at that time, the court will grant him bail.
