BALTIMORE — A federal jury in Baltimore convicted a Jamaican woman Tuesday for murder in aid of racketeering in connection with a conspiracy to distribute marijuana in five U.S. states and Jamaica, following an investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Baltimore County Police Department and the Anne Arundel County Police Department. Jean Brown, 43, was identified as one of the leaders of the Brown Organization, a criminal organization whose members distributed narcotics in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Arizona, California and Jamaica. Brown’s co-defendant Gabriel Campa-Mayen, 45, of Tijuana, Mexico, was acquitted of all charges. “Today’s conviction of Jean Brown for drug conspiracy and kidnapping and murder in aid of racketeering is a victory for HSI special agents, who since 2009 have been investigating the Jean Brown drug trafficking organization, which spanned five states and two countries. HSI special agents have seized approximately 100 pounds of marijuana, $853,000 in cash and bank accounts and six firearms from these co-conspirators, who used intimidation and violence to further their criminal activities,” said William Winter, special agent in charge of HSI Baltimore. “HSI will continue working with our law enforcement partners to investigate and ultimately dismantle criminal organizations that are wreaking violence in our communities through the illicit drug trade.” According to evidence presented at their seven-day trial, Jean Brown and Carl Smith – who was killed by one of Brown’s co-conspirators – were the leaders of a drug organization that obtained marijuana in Arizona and California and used trucking companies that Brown owned and operated to transport the marijuana to Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York on a monthly basis. The evidence showed that they transported as much as 1,000 pounds of marijuana per month from 2000 until Brown’s arrest in 2010.
Brown employed truck drivers and arranged for the distribution of the marijuana on the East Coast, principally in Baltimore and Pittsburgh, used couriers to smuggle the drug proceeds to Jamaica, and sent cash back to the Southwest to pay for the next load.
Witnesses testified that on Dec. 16, 2009, Brown, Smith and additional co-defendants Peter Blake, Hubert Downer and Dean Myrie kidnapped Michael Knight, one of Brown’s money couriers. According to trial testimony, Knight was holding $1 million for the organization, but when the money was collected $250,000 was missing. Myrie drove Brown and Knight, who was bound with a telephone cable, and other members of the organization to an apartment in White Marsh, Md., where Brown and others interrogated Knight. After Knight was not able to provide the location of the money, Brown ordered Downer and Blake to kill Knight. Knight was stabbed to death in the bathtub. Over the next few days Brown, Myrie, Downer and Blake dismembered Knight and disposed of his body in dumpsters in the Loch Raven and Liberty Road areas of Baltimore County.
In addition to the murder of Knight, the evidence showed that after threatening Smith on several occasions, in April 2010, Brown offered to pay Campa-Mayen and Leo Alvarez Tostado-Gastellium to murder Smith in Tijuana, Mexico. Witnesses testified that Tostado-Gastellium killed Smith, shooting him in the head. Brown also assaulted a former partner in the drug organization with a baseball bat and a woman and her infant child with boiling water and with a knife. Brown faces a maximum of life in prison for the drug conspiracy, for kidnapping in aid of racketeering and for murder in aid of racketeering and a maximum of 10 years in prison for conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering. Hubert Downer, aka “Doc” and “Michael Reid,” 51, of Jamaica; Dean Myrie, aka “Journey,” 39, of Jamaica and Peter Blake, 55, of Jamaica have all pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy and are awaiting sentencing. Tostado-Gastellium, aka “Superman,” is a fugitive. This Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Stefan D. Cassella and Peter M. Nothstein.

Dean Myrie, a/k/a “Journey,” age 39, a Jamaican national, was arrested on July 3, 2012, by the New York Police Department (NYPD)/U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) Task Force, after the U.S. Marshals Service received a tip from someone who saw an episode of “America’s Most Wanted” featuring Myrie. The episode aired on June 29, 2012. Dean Myrie, who was in the United States illegally, was residing in an apartment in New York City

    Jean Brown had the Mexicans kill her own Baby Father (Carl Smith) in Mexico, after he wanted to get out of the drug business!

    They are going after the Jamaican properties and money. They arrested about 5-6 of her Family Members in Jamaica. See…

    Recovery Agency Seeks To Get $1b From St Ann Woman
    The Assets Recovery Agency, with the assistance of the United States government, is seeking to recover assets amounting to more than $1 billion from a St Ann woman and five of her relatives who are facing charges of money laundering.

    Businesswoman Carol Lawrence-Austin, along with her other co-accused, appeared in the St Ann’s Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.

    Defence lawyers Tom Tavares-Finson and Christian Tavares-Finson made bail applications for them and they were each granted bail in the sum of $5 million with sureties.

    They are to return to court on June 28.

    The other accused are Mavis Grant, Patrice Christie, Gentles Mott, Paula Barrett and Eustan Gillespie.

    It is being alleged that Lawrence- Austin’s sister Jean Therese Brown who lived in Maryland, United States (US), along with others, operated a massive drug-trafficking ring in several states in the US.

    Couriers were used to take large sums of money from the US to Jamaica and it is further alleged that the monies were used to purchase motor vehicles and several properties in St Ann.

    Case pending

    The Assets Recovery Agency is seeking to confiscate eight properties in St Ann and two motor vehicles and the case is pending in the Supreme Court.

    Witnesses from the US will be coming to the island to testify at the money laundering trial.

    Following investigations by the Financial Investigations Division, the six accused who are from Bamboo, St Ann, were arrested and charged.

    Brown is serving a 37-month prison sentence in the US after pleading guilty in 2010 to bulk cash smuggling. According to court documents, Brown arranged for couriers to smuggle more than half a million dollars from Baltimore to Jamaica on Christmas Day in 2008.

    This just blows my mind! And they said women were the softer weaker sex?!!!!!
    Anonymous, thanks for sharing the link to the pictures, I wanted to see what such a monster looked like in person. The devil really doesn’t walk around with horns, does he?

    Marijuana has never hurt a soul. Most people who sell weed are not murderers, however, there are many murderers who are engaged in organized crime that involves, drug trafficking, racketeering, kidnapping and murders. There are people in high political offices who do not sell weed yet they pay people to kill/silence others with enough knowledge to jeopardize the political ambitions. There are heartless people who sell marijuana as clearly it is lucrative, these are the same people who would have killed if they were selling million dollar shoes. Anything with enormous sums of money, greed, disloyalty and dishonesty create a recipe for disaster. It has nothing to do with marijuana per se, it has to do with the nature of the people involved.

    Wow, let me ask YOU a simple question: Do you really believe that Michael Knight took US$250,000 of a drug dealer money? Stop a think for a moment; do really believe someone would be that stupid to take 1/4 of the money that was entrusted to him? I can understand if Knight took a $5,000 or $10,000, but NOT $250,000. I think he was only given $750,000 by maybe Carl Smith and Smith told Jean Brown that it was $1 million, keeping the $250,000 for himself. No one who is being tortured over a number of days and knowing what the final outcome (death), would remain silent as to where the missing money went. He couldn’t convince them that he didn’t take the money because he wasn’t given that amount in the first place. The other thing is, he knew they would want ALL the money back, so tell me, where was he going to get the $250K to give back if he took it? Makes no sense right? Maybe Jean Brown realized after the fact that it was Carl Smith that shorted the money (along with other shotages) and that is why he was eventually killed in Mexico. So, I firmly believe they kill an individual that had no knowledge of the missing money.

    I person I know who was holding about the same amount of money and his babymother kept dipping into the stash and helping herself. Lucky for him, it total amount missing was less than $10,000.

    Wow you can come up with any excuse you want about what Mocha said, the facts are you sound like are just like a Jean Brown and probably involve in the same type of activities. You are a criminal, aren’t you?
