Richard Borland, a 22-year-old employee of the Radisson Fort George Hotel as a House Keeper, is out on bail after he was read a single charge of drug trafficking.

Borland appeared in the Belize City Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Aretha Ford on August 11, 2017 where he was read a single charge of drug trafficking for having 2,124.6 grams of cannabis in his possession.

In court where Borland was unrepresented, he pleaded not guilty to the charge.

There was no objection to bail being granted and he received it in the sum of $2,000 plus one surety of the same amount which he was able to meet. His next court date is set for October 19, 2017.
