A St. James Parish Judge will hand down a verdict September 6 on narcotics peddling charges against security guards Owen Glaze and Andrew Brown, who were taken into custody by the police after they were allegedly held with 66 kilograms of cocaine, which has an estimated value of $264 million.
The drug was allegedly found inside the Guardsman Limited vehicle in which Glaze and Brown were travelling in along the Mt Carey main road in St James, on April 20, 2013.
Attorney-at-law Dionne Meyler, who represents Glaze, is challenging a caution statement that Glaze had signed while in the custody of the police on April 21.
On Wednesday, August 2, when the matter came up before Parish Judge Natalie Hart-Hines, Meyler vigorously cross-examined Detective Byron “Toyan” Miller, who had already given evidence, in relation to the caution statement. Detective Miller, at the time of the incident, was a member of the Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Task Force.
The statement in question was signed one day after Glaze and Brown were taken into custody by the police.
Following the cross-examination of Detective Miller on Wednesday, Judge Hart-Hines adjourned the matter until September 6 when she will pronounce her verdict.
The men’s bails were extended to that date.
