Police found 226 grams of cannabis in Choc’s boxers

Nelbert Choc, 30, a resident of #32 Estrella Street, Caye Caulker, was brought before Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith and read a single charge of drug trafficking.

According to police, acting on information they received, they yesterday visited the Caye Caulker Water Taxi station on North Front Street, where they saw Choc and conducted a search on him.

Found inside the waist of Choc’s boxers were two zip-lock bags which contained suspected cannabis, and when weighed, the substance amounted to 226 grams.

Choc pleaded not guilty and begged the court to please grant him bail because his wife was in the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, about to give birth.

He was offered bail of $500 and one surety of the same amount, and is to report to the Caye Caulker Police Station every Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. He is scheduled to return to court on October 29, 2013.
