Alleged drug pusher appears in court
Thirty year old Amando Browne of 7th Avenue, Skeetes Road, Ivy, St. Michael was due to appear in court here today to answer a series of charges, including two counts of resisting arrest and two counts of assaulting police.
Browne also faces charges of possession of cocaine, possession with intent to supply and trafficking in cocaine.
This follows a shooting incident at Browne’s Beach on December 1 in which he was allegedly caught selling illegal drugs. During the arrest, police say Browne armed himself and attacked the police officers who feared for their lives.
As a result one officer drew his service firearm and shot the suspect in his right arm. He was immediately taken to the Hospital for medical attention by police officers. Both officers also sought medical attention for their injuries, lawmen said.
