Alleged Belizean drug dealers remanded to prison in Mexico City

Three Belizeans and a Mexican national, alleged drug dealers captured in Chetumal with over five pounds of cocaine last Friday, have been remanded to a prison today in Mexico City, where they will await trial for drug trafficking offenses. The men were captured by the marines of the Mexican Army stationed in the Chetumal area on Friday, November 15, on Cuauhtémoc Street in Subteniente Lopez Town on the Mexico-Belize border.

The date when the men will appear in court is not yet known, but a remand time in jail of 6 months before a court trial is expected.
