ST. GEORGE, GRENADA, MAY 28, 2018: Drug charges against Radio Dj, Brian “Jabba” Charles and Politician, Basil Williams, have been dropped reportedly due to a plea deal made in the court Monday. This outcome is due to bus driver, Brandford Thomas, accepting full responsibility for the importation of the six pounds of lab growth cannabis imported to Grenada from the USA on Friday, May 4th.
Brian Charles and his lawyer Deloni Edwards, held a press briefing Monday afternoon to inform the media of the new development.
Police initially charged all three men with conspiracy to import and traffic a controlled drug, after the drugs was found hidden in a barrel that was being cleared by Charles. The weed was discovered concealed in a bag of cat food.
Thomas having accepted full responsibility for the drugs was fined EC$20,000.00, which was paid forthwith.
