Steven Palacio, 23, is in jail after he was allegedly busted with four live rounds of 9 mm ammunition on Saturday, February 22nd. Palacio was unrepresented when he appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith on Monday, February 24th, and pleaded not guilty to keeping ammunition without a license. Due to the nature of the offense, bail was not granted and Palacio was remanded to the Belize Central Prison.

In court, Palacio told the Chief Magistrate, “They plant the ammunitions in my car because when the police first searched my car near Chon Saan, they found nothing.” He said after he was searched at Chon Saan he was taken to the police station and interrogated. It was then that an officer took his car keys. According to Palacio, a few minutes later the officer came back to get him and they took him to the vehicle and searched it in front of him. During that search the officers found the four bullets.
