Ex-boyfriend of Breonna Taylor charged with drug trafficking, using minors to transport narcotics

The ex-boyfriend of Breonna Taylor, who was the target of a narcotics investigation that ultimately resulted in Taylor's death, has been charged with a slew of drug trafficking offenses. He has also reportedly used minors to transport and sell narcotics.

Jamarcus Glover, 33, reportedly faces multiple charges, including conspiracy to traffic in a controlled substance, unlawful transaction with a minor with illegal controlled substances, and engaging in organized crime, per the Louisville Courier Journal.

The arrest citation apparently indicates that Glover and two others have been accused of using minors to transport and sell heroin, fentanyl, and other illegal substances. When investigators executed a search warrant for a home in the Taylor Berry neighborhood, "a quantity of narcotics and several firearms were recovered."

On March 13, 2020, the authorities showed up to Breonna Taylor's home, as they believed Glover was storing cash and drugs at the residence. He was also one of several people arrested in a narcotics investigation about 10 miles from Taylor's home in Louisville's South End.

Three officers with the Louisville Metro Police Department opened fire on Taylor's home after her boyfriend at the time, Kenneth Walker, fired a shot that struck one of the officers. Walker later claimed that he believed the officers were intruders, as he did not hear the authorities announce themselves.

As a result, Taylor was fatally struck by gunfire from the officers.

The report noted that the search warrants for Taylor's apartment cited that Glover had left the residence in January 2020 with a "suspected USPS package" and made his way to a "known drug house."

The LMPD detective behind the warrant, Joshua Jaynes, apparently wrote at the time that he had verified with the U.S. Postal Service that Glover had received packages at Taylor home, but that did not turn out to be true.

Glover claimed that Taylor had no involvement with any illegal drug trafficking, and the details within the search warrant were misleading and inaccurate.

After the investigation into Taylor's home concluded, it was established that there were no illegal substances at her address.

While Black Lives Matter came to the defense of Taylor after the incident, Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, took aim at the Louisville Black Lives Matter chapter and Kentucky state Rep. Attica Scott (D) in April 2021 for apparently exploiting Taylor's in order to raise money or advance policy initiatives.
