By BBN Staff: Yesterday, a pastor who is also a taxi man appeared in court for drug trafficking charges.
Pastor Mark Humes alleges that he picked up a teenager who had with him a suitcase filled with weed, and as a result, Humes and the minor were charged with drug trafficking.
According to Humes, he picked up the minor and another passenger at the Novelo’s Bus Terminal.
Humes then dropped the passenger at the water taxi terminal but the passenger took the minor’s suitcase.
The minor later noticed that the suitcase was missing and so he and Humes went back to the terminal to get the suitcase.
On their way back from the terminal, police intercepted them at the corner of Victoria Street and when they searched the vehicle and suitcase, they found 10 pounds of weed.
The minor accepted responsibility for the suitcase and intended to plead guilty but his attorney Oscar Selgado advised him not to proceed.
Humes and the minor were offered bail of $1000.
