Policeman, brother and businessman remanded
Special Constable Jimmy Thorne, 37, of Coach Hill, St John, his younger brother Jamal Andre Thorne, 32, of Cherry Grove, St John and businessman Ross Ashton, 37, have been remanded to prison for a week.
The three, facing a range of drug-related charges, appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale this morning.
The charges stem from an incident last Sunday in which police intercepted a motorcar at Bay Street, St. Michael in which the Thorne brothers were occupants.
A search of the vehicle’s trunk revealed 12 lbs of cannabis. Further investigations led to the arrest of Ashton.
