This past Friday, popular football player Ian Gaynair—who has played on the country’s National Team for several years—was found in possession of over a thousand cans of contraband beer after being stopped by police officers in the Orange Walk District. According to police reports, a low-riding Toyota Corolla was spotted somewhere between San Antonio and Santa Cruz Village. Upon intercepting and inspecting the vehicle, which was being driven by Gaynair, police found several cases of Mexican beers, including forty-two cases of Corona beer (containing a total of 1008 cans), six cases of Superior beer, and two cases of Barrillito beer.

Gaynair was taken to the Belize Customs Department and has since agreed to a settlement. In cases where persons are caught with contraband, settlements usually amount to three times the value of the items confiscated by Customs.

Over the weekend, the football star jokingly posted on his Facebook account, “so I cant have my party again then?”
