Jamaican Woman Gets Life For Murder And Racketeering In US, Others Plead Guilty

BALTIMORE –
A Jamaican woman was today sentenced to life in prison for murder in aid of racketeering in connection with a conspiracy to distribute marijuana in five U.S. states and Jamaica.

The investigation was conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Baltimore County Police Department and the Anne Arundel County Police Department.

Jean Brown, 43, was one of the leaders of the Brown Organization, a criminal organization whose members distributed narcotics primarily in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Arizona, California and Jamaica.

“Today’s life sentence of Jean Brown for her drug conspiracy, 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,” said William Winter, special agent in charge of HSI Baltimore.

“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.”

U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Rod J. Rosenstein said Jean Brown ran a lucrative drug organization that committed wanton and brutal acts of violence.

“In 2009, after authorities seized $250,000 in drug proceeds from courier Michael Knight, Brown and her associates kidnapped Knight, dismembered him in a bathtub and threw his remains in the trash.”

According to evidence presented at their seven-day trial, Jean Brown and Carl Smith – who was killed by one of Brown’s co-conspirators – led 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 conspirators transported as much as 1,000 pounds of marijuana per month from 2000 until Brown’s arrest in 2010.

Brown employed the truck drivers, 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 December 16, 2009, Brown, Smith and additional co-defendants Peter Blake, Hubert Downer and Dean Myrie kidnapped Michael Knight, one of Brown’s money couriers.
Knight was holding $1 million for the organization, but when the money was collected $250,000 was missing.

Myrie drove Knight, who was bound with a telephone cable, Brown and other drug members to an apartment in White Marsh, Maryland, 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 co-conspirators to murder Smith in Tijuana, Mexico.

Witnesses testified that one of the co-conspirators killed Smith, shooting him in the head.

Meanwhile, Dean Myrie, aka “Journey,” 39, of Jamaica, pleaded guilty to kidnapping in aid of racketeering and was sentenced to 108 months in prison.

Hubert Downer, aka “Doc” and “Michael Reid,” 51, of Jamaica, and Peter Blake, 55, of Jamaica, have also pleaded guilty to their roles in the conspiracy and are awaiting sentencing.

    The only “new” news here is that she was sentenced to life in prison, which occurred a day or two ago.

    Was it worth it? Now she will spend the rest of life in prison, will lose most of her wealth both in Jamaica and the US. About 5/6 of her family members in Jamaica were arrested for money laundering and and the they all got caught up into this whole this. She made millions from 2000 – 2010, yet because of greed, she will not get a chance to the proceeds of the criminal enterprise. I guess she did not know when to stop.
