The Gang Suppression Unit (GSU) found stashes of crack cocaine, marijuana and tools used for criminal activity in an early morning raid at the George Street home of Derrick “Brian” Brown, 36.
The search which lasted more than 12 hours revealed a pair of handcuffs, ski masks and a set of blue plates used exclusively by government vehicles.
Police seized 1,124 grams of crack cocaine, 762 grams of cannabis, $2,728 in U.S. currency and $2,250 in Belizean currency.
Police have issued an all-points warrant for Brown’s arrest. They intend to charge him with six counts of drug trafficking; possession of a “bong” used for smoking cannabis and possession of an unregistered bullet-proof vest found in his home.
Brown’s home was guarded by a security camera system, but he was not at home when the police arrived. His mother, who lives next door, was able to reach him by cell phone.
In order to legitimize their search, the police took along a Justice of the Peace as witness.
Police seized a set digital scales, used telephone SIM cards, and a cellular phone.
They also took possession of a white sheet with what appeared to be human blood stains. Police say they will send it to the National Forensics Lab for analysis along with a ski mask that has a similar stain.
Although Brown has been under police investigation several times, he has never been convicted of any crime.
