City woman busted on bus in Corozal with 1,587 grams of weed

Ebony Bailey, 29, of Belize City, has been released from Corozal police custody on a bail of $3,000 by the Corozal Magistrate’s Court and ordered to return to court on Thursday, October 10, after she was found with 1,587 grams of cannabis by police in the Libertad area while she was travelling on a passenger bus heading from Corozal to Belize City at about 4:30 yesterday evening.

She was taken to the Corozal Police Station, where she was charged with drug trafficking.

Bailey was taken to court this afternoon, Tuesday, in Corozal, where the charge was read to her. The 1,587 grams of weed have since been deposited as “evidence” at the Corozal Police Station, to be used in the case against her.

Police say that they were on an anti-drug patrol when they stopped the passenger bus and carried out a random search of Bailey, who was seated in the bus at the time. They searched a black kit bag that she was carrying and found four parcels of cannabis.

Bailey was immediately taken off the bus and escorted to the Corozal Police Station, where the drugs were weighed in her presence. She was then arrested and charged with possession of the drug.
