Police say that officers from the Quick Response Precinct Two Unit were on an anti-drug operation on Fitzgibbon Street at around 9:40 a.m. on Wednesday. They searched an abandoned lot in the Pickstock area of Belize City which led to the discovery of a black plastic bag containing suspected cannabis which amounted to 464 grams.

During the operation a second find of a black plastic bag among garbage weighed 455 grams or just over a pound. Both finds were regarded as found property.
