A trio was brought before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser on Friday, April 21 to answer to drug trafficking, a charge which could land them behind bars. Those men were 18-year-old Jonathan Young, his brother 26-year-old Jordan Young, and their cousin, firefighter 32-year-old Michael Bey, all of Belize City.

In court Jordan Young decided to plea guilty for possession of the weed. He told the court that the marijuana was for his personal consumption. As a result of his plea he was imposed a non-custodial sentence where he was fined $600 plus the cost of court, and was ordered to pay by June 30, 2017 in default 1 year imprisonment. In a separate case, Jordan was arraigned before Magistrate Carlon Mendoza for a single charge of possession of 58 grams of a controlled drug. He pleaded guilty and was imposed a non-custodial sentence where he was fined $250.00 plus the cost of court fine. He was ordered to pay by June 21, 2017 in default 2 months imprisonment.

Jonathan, a student of SJCJC, along with his cousin Bey both pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

Police reported that they found a collective 83 grams of weed on the men.
