Special Constable Jimmy Thorne, 37, of Coach Hill, St John; his brother, 32-year-old Jamal Andre Thorne, of Cherry Grove, St John and Ross Ashton, 37, of Rosemont, Deacons Road, St Michael have all been charged.

Jimmy Thorne is facing four charges, including possession of marijuana, trafficking and intent to supply while Jamal Thorne is accused of six-drug related offences.
