Hot New Hip Hop reported today that Jamarcus Glover, who dated Breonna Taylor before she died, was slapped with drug charges on Thursday morning. According to the outlet, the allegations of drug trafficking – which he denies – played a crucial role in her death.
The Louisville police used a no-knock warrant after a police officer claimed to have seen Glover engaging in criminal activity. A detective wrote in an affidavit that he saw Glover grab a parcel from Breonna‘s house before driving to a known drug house.
According to Hot New Hip Hop, there is a record of Glover listing Breonna’s home as his place of residence, even though they had broken up before she was killed. Regardless, Glover said to a local news station that Taylor wasn’t a drug dealer, and wasn’t connected to drug trafficking.
In a statement to the news outlet, he claimed the police are trying to make it seem like it’s his fault as if he was the one to bring the problem to Breonna‘s door. Glover said to the Louisville Courier-Journal that there wasn’t anything criminal happening at Breonna’s home.
The police “went about it the wrong way” and lied on their search warrant, which led to Breonna’s death. Kenneth Walker, who was dating Breonna right up until she was shot by police, was reportedly aware of what Glover had been doing.

He claims when they heard the police banging on their door late at night, they assumed it was Glover. They had no reason to believe it was the police. Walker fired his gun off and the Louisville police responded by firing inside the home, accidentally killing Breonna.
The police also apprehended Glover on the same night as Taylor‘s death, however, he had been let out of the station on bail by the time they arrived at Breonna’s home.
Breonna’s sister, Ju’Niyah Palmer, claimed she was opposed to drugs and illegal activity. Reportedly, Glover was involved in the trafficking of marijuana, cocaine, and heroin.
