BELIZEAN CRYSTAL METH DRUG DEALER BUSTED IN THE U.S.

A Belizean who grew up in the Cayo District and entered the USA illegally several years ago was arrested in Norfolk, Arkansas for conspiracy to distribute an illegal drug known as crystal methamphetamine or Crystal Meth. According to ‘The Virgian- Pilot’ 48 year old Belizean Erick Gillett was busted when an associate of a Texas-based drug dealer mistakenly switched the addresses on a package intended for Norfolk. The mix-up prevented the package from leaving a Houston area FedEx facility, and ultimately led to its seizure by police. The package contained 2 pounds of crystal methamphetamine. Gillett was reportedly being investigated by law enforcement officers, prior to his arrest, for other drug related charges including the distribution of fentanyl, a synthetic opioid blamed in part for a recent uptick in fatal drug overdoses across the county.
