BDF Destroyed Almost a Ton of Marijuana in January
If you live in Belize City, you see the BDF everyday guarding your corner and
patrolling your street – and we know that they are also on the Western
border – but tonight the news is that Belize’s finest have also
been burning out copious marijuana plantations.
A release from the army today reported that working in tandem with the Police
Department – the BDF has conducted major marijuana eradication operations
in Northern and Southern Belize. Since the first week of January, 35,707 mature
plants and 1,900 pounds – almost a ton of compressed marijuana have been
destroyed. Thirty pounds of marijuana seeds were also burnt.
The fields were in Blue Creek, Honey Camp, Chiwa Camp and Little Belize in
the north and in the south they were concentrated behind San Pedro Colombia.
There were a total of 24 plantations. But weed wasn’t the only thing found.
Two shotguns were also confiscated – but no arrests were made at any of
