A team of officials from the Customs Department, Police Department and Anti-Narcotics Unit have been ‘camping out’ all-day at a business house in downtown Corozal Town. The business is Almacen Ashanti, owned by an Indian businessman. Officials have been at the said establishment since this morning and were carrying out their operation until late evening.
There were heavily armed officers guarding the doors and they literally shooed away anyone who attempted to enter the store for business. Curious individuals who stopped to take pictures of what was going on had to face the aggressiveness of officers who in turn took pictures of them and even their vehicles.
We asked the Police media relations department what is taking place at the business, but up to news time no information has been forthcoming.
