A police witness in the Klansman Gang Trial this morning revealed that lawmen had discovered five cellular phones, several SIM cards and $255,000, when they searched the residence of one of the accused, Ruel Taylor on June 25, 2019.
The witness, who is the 16th person to take the stand is a detective inspector attached to the Constabulary’s Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch, C-TOC.
The witness says the police searched Taylor’s house in Jones Avenue and found the items in a bedroom he shared with his child’s mother.
The prosecution who was marshaling the witness’ examination-in-chief, also asked him to point out Taylor in the dock.
The witness says Taylor had a peculiarity with the way he walked.
Presiding Judge, Chief Justice Bryan Syked asked the witness quote:
“So you want all of them to walk?”, referring to the accused in the dock.
The witness initially said no, but later requested that five of the men in the dock, walk a short distance to help him identify Taylor.
Following the short walk by five of the defendants, Taylor was identified among them.
