Thursday, June 8th, 2017

On 05.06.17 around 8:30PM, The Belize Coast Guard reported that around 7:30PM they were conducting patrols in the lagoon area west of San Pedro Town, when their attention was drawn to a small vessel coming from a channel in the area. The strobe lights of the Coast Guard boat were then turned on to signal the vessel to stop, but instead it took off. They pursued the vessel until it came to a stop at a canal. In the boat was 28-year-old fisherman Jaime Young of Tarpon Street, San Pedro Town. A search of a knapsack he was carrying led to the discovery of two transparent plastic bags which contained 2.9 grams of cocaine. He was escorted to the San Pedro Police Station where he was charged for Drug Trafficking.
