Magistrate Court Regular, Darien Banks, on drug and gun charges

Darien Banks

The notorious figure Darien Banks has been before the courts too many times to mention, but most recently he was charged along with his wife Desiree Barrow Banks. Trial began today against the couple on charges of Drug Trafficking, Kept Prohibited Firearm and Kept Prohibited Ammunition. They were both arrested following a search at their home on Mahogany Street Extension in November, 2010. According to PC Ryan Young, who was the first to testify in the case, they found a bag on the roof which contained twenty-six point five, pounds of cannabis.

Young also told the court that Darien asked if he could turn in a Colt AR-fifteen Rifle to have the drug charges dropped. But Young said he had to consult his superiors, which resulted in Darien and his wife being charged for both the drugs and prohibition weapon. Darrel Bradley and Alifa Elrington are representing the couple in the trial, which case continues on May twenty-sixth.
