Tyrone BannerOn Monday July 11th, 21-year-old Tyrone Banner, an unemployed resident of #13 Marigold Lane was denied bail and remanded into custody at the Belize Central Prison after being charged with drug trafficking.

On Saturday, July 9th at about 6:15 p.m., police on mobile patrol on Jasmine streetstopped him after he looked suspicious and despite the fact that he refused to be searched they found a bag of marijuana in his underwear. The weed weighed 104.3 grams.

Banner appeared before senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer where he was unrepresented and where he pleaded not guilty to one count of drug trafficking. Due to the fact that he owed the court $905 for a previous guilty plea on a possession of a control drug, he was denied bail as he had made no payment towards the old fee.

Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer told him that unless he could clear up his old bill now, no bail can be considered on his behalf.

He was remanded to the Belize Central Prison until August 24.
