Heroin Investigation The Washington Post June 30, 1977, Thursday, Final Edition

SECTION: First Section; Around the World; A25

LENGTH: 95 words

HEADLINE: Heroin Investigation

BYLINE: From staff reports and news dispatches


The prime minister of the British colony of Belize and two of his aides were targets of a heroin probe which later was scuttled, according to federal court records filed in Miami.

Government officials in the Central American country - formerly called British Honduras - disavowed any knowledge of an investigation involving Prime Minister George Price, his deputy, C. L. B. Rogers, or his assistant, Louis Sylvester.

U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration officials have said they believe Belize is a stopping point for Middle East heroin to enter the United States.
