In these times of health crisis, the court of Quimper has never been as full as on February 23. Ten escorts, gendarmes in reinforcement but also and especially ten defendants. Six men, four women, aged 18 to 21. All from the Paris region. They have been in pre-trial detention since February 19, two days after their arrest, in the early morning hours. Eight were arrested by the military in two lodgings in Plouescat and Ploudalmézeau, in the company of two minors – placed under judicial supervision and who will be tried later. “In one of the lodgings, were found the subordinates in shared rooms and 800 g of cannabis resin, poses the prosecutor Jean-Baptiste Doubliez. In the other, a little more comfortable, we found the hierarchy but also the 12.8 kg of resin and the 800 g of cocaine ”.
Two heads, an assistant, four lieutenants, a logistics manager and four executives
This is Kevin
who would be, with Antoine
at the head of traffic. We also find Amélie
who would act as an assistant. Aged 21, she is under judicial control in connection with a case of importing 5 kg of cocaine – “20 kg according to the prevention”, specifies the prosecutor – from Colombia. Anais
20 years old, with a clean record is considered to be the titular driver and taking care of the traffic logistics.
The traffic would count four lieutenants, including one of the two minors. Also among the four, Alain
, 20 years old, high level boxer, considered “a crack” among amateurs. The other two, Antoineand Henri
, were arrested in Anjou on February 17 after a refusal to obey the La Gravelle toll. Having left Leon before the arrival of the gendarmes, they are 18 years old and under judicial supervision in the context of another drug trafficking case handled by the Brest prosecutor’s office.
Among the “performers”, there is Héloïse , 20 years old and Triss , of the same age. There is also Matthew and Eric . Residing in Massy (Essonne), they were released from drug trafficking, after a procedural flaw on February 9, with a third thief, after a month in pre-trial detention. The Quimper prosecutor’s office appealed the decision the next day.
It is this procedure, based on aggravated refusals to comply in South Finistère in January, which launched the investigation, by means of telephone tapping, geolocation, surveillance but also the help of 125 gendarmes including the Psig de Quimper, Douarnenez , Brest and Morlaix, in addition to the research brigades of Quimper and Segré.
Having asked for a delay to prepare their defense, the ten defendants will be tried on March 29, by the court of Quimper. And were all kept in pre-trial detention.
