drug traffickersOn the early morning of Wednesday, November 22nd, Customs Officers set up a checkpoint near the area of Estero, a hot spot for smuggling contraband over the river from Mexico to Belize.

This time at around 6:30 AM they spotted a white Geo Prizm coming from the riverside.

As they spotted the Customs checkpoint, the vehicle immediately stopped and began to reverse away from the checkpoint.

The Customs Officers report that at the same time they observed that a large object was thrown out of the front passenger side window into the bushes nearby.

Both men in the vehicle were eventually caught and the package was recovered which contained about 20 pounds of weed.

The drug traffickers and the drugs have been turned over to the Corozal Police.
