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.
