Troy Hyde, 32, and Raheem Arnold, 25, both of Curl Thompson Street in Belize City, were before the court on Thursday, July 4, 2019 to answer to drug related offenses. The men appeared before Magistrate Emmerson Banner where they were read the charges of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply to another person or persons and for one count of possession of a controlled drug. They were read those charges after being busted with eighty-four and twenty-eight grams of cannabis, respectively. Arnold pleaded guilty to both charges and asked to plead guilty to possession simplicita for the charge of drug trafficking. The Office of the DPP accepted and he was given two non-custodial sentences of $1,000 for the eighty-four grams and $300 for the twenty-eight grams. He was given until August 15, 2019 to pay his fines after which he will be facing prison times of eight months and three months, respectively.

Since Arnold took the rap, the charges were withdrawn from against Hyde but have since posed more trouble for Hyde. Hyde is out on Supreme Court bail for the murder of Kareem Lopez. As a part of his bail condition, he was not to be arrested or charged with any offenses while out on bail. So to determine whether or not his bail will be revoked, Hyde is expected to return to the Supreme Court.
