By Aaron Humes: Eldon Marlon Young, 41, was fined $250 and court costs for a 4 1/2 inch silver and black metal knife with which he was found at 1:30 a.m. Thursday, May 2, in Pinks Alley, Belize City.

The car washer and messenger fell foul of an old law that makes it a criminal offense to have a knife longer than 3 inches in your possession on the street between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Young wasted no time in pleading guilty to the charge and must pay two months in jail in absentia on June 14.

Police say Young was spotted suspiciously by officers on patrol in the area and a search revealed the knife.
