Now he’s in a new kind of trouble.
Brown was the target of an undercover operation by the Kansas City Police Department’s Narcotics Unit. According to these court documents filed by the Jackson County prosecutor, Brown is charged with three counts of possession with intent to sell crack, possession of marijuana and resisting arrest for allegedly running from the arresting officers.
The probable cause statement claims that Brown sold crack to undercover narcotics officers on June 12, June 13 and June 18. He was allegedly selling at 2504 East 9th Street, 11th and Brooklyn, and the intersection of Independence Avenue and Prospect. Police say they recovered 1.1 grams of “beige rock” when they arrested Brown on June 18. The Street Narcotics Unit spent a total of $130 of the unit’s “buy money” on crack from Brown.
During his murder trial, Brown’s father, the Rev. Keith Brown, maintained his son’s innocence and rounded up a dozen young witnesses to testify on his son’s behalf. When contacted about his son’s newest arrest, Brown said of his son, “Yeah, but he’s out.”
Brown added only, “I’ll know once I find out what’s going on, and I’ll share my thoughts with you at that time.” – Nadia Pflaum
