Jamaican found guilty of running marijuana operations in the US
A Jamaican man is facing decades in prison after being found guilty of running an elaborate marijuana tracking operation and committing weapon and money laundering offences in Connecticut in the United States.
Andrew Davis, 38, also known as Steve Williams, was found guilty on multiple charges following a lengthy investigation by Homeland Security.
During the probe, investigators were able to intercept four mailed packages containing marijuana.
Davis was arrested on February 1 last year when investigators conducted searches of a Hamden apartment, a storage unit in West Haven, and two Bridgeport apartments that Davis maintained under different aliases.
Further investigation into Davis found that he was also under investigation in 2008 for marijuana trafficking under the name “Steve Williams.”
Davis is scheduled to be sentenced on March 13 next year.
His girlfriend, Shanice Goffe, was sentenced to 30 months in prison in February after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute 50 kilograms or more of marijuana and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
