In that recorded March 13 call, Glover, 30, told a girlfriend that Taylor was holding $8,000 for him and that she had been “handling all my money.” No money was found at her residence during the police search.
Aguiar has said previously that Glover and Taylor had dated until about two years earlier and that they maintained a “passive” friendship.
But the recordings and other evidence reviewed by The Courier Journal show Taylor and Glover maintained closer ties.
On Jan. 3, for example, following Glover’s arrest on trafficking and weapons charges, he called Taylor from the jail and asked her to contact one of his co-defendants to get bail money.
Taylor responded that the associate was “already at the trap” — slang for a house used for drug trafficking.
Glover told her to be on standby to pick him up if he made bail. “I’m going to get me some rest in your bed,” he said, according to the recording.
“Love you,” he said, at the end of the call.
“Love you, too,” she replied.
At a Tuesday afternoon press conference, interim LMPD Chief Robert Schroeder chastised the release of the internal report.
“We want to protect the integrity of all of our investigations,” Schroeder said. “This kind of leak and this kind of reporting is simply not helpful to the process. It seems irrelevant to the goal of getting justice, peace and healing for our community.”
Jamarcus Glover claims Breonna Taylor held his money
The Courier Journal has corroborated that on Dec. 30, 2019, five days before her recorded jail conversation with Glover, Taylor posted a $2,500 bond for another man charged in the same case, 34-year-old Darreal Forest.
His attorney, Casey McCall, did not immediately respond to a question about how his client knew Taylor.
Glover, Forest and three other men were charged with trafficking and weapons offenses after police received a tip from a confidential informant that they were hiding drugs and firearms in abandoned homes adjacent to the “trap house” they allegedly operated at the Elliott Avenue address.
Police seized five handguns and three rifles, according to evidence filed in the case.
The jail recordings The Courier Journal reviewed show that on March 13, Glover, while trying to round up cash to make bail on a new set of trafficking charges, called a girlfriend and told her Taylor had his money.
“She had the eight grand I gave her the other day, and she picked up another six,” Glover said.
“Did she tell you where it was?” the caller asked him.
“She didn’t have the chance to tell me nothing,” he replied. “She dead.”
When the caller asked Glover why he had left the money with Taylor, he said: “Don’t take it wrong but Bre been handling all my money. She has been handling (expletive) for me and … it ain’t just me.”.
Jones, Glover and Bowman, along with three other defendants — Rayshawn Lee, 33; Anthony J. Taylor II, 31; and Adrian Walker, 28 — are charged with complicity in trafficking in a controlled substance and running an organized crime syndicate.
They have all pleaded not guilty.
Police surveil Jamarcus Glover and Breonna Taylor
Court records show that Taylor posted bond twice for Glover in 2017, as mentioned in the police report, though it is not unusual for a girlfriend, spouse, friend or parent to post bond for a loved one.
The police report says Glover called Taylor’s phone from the jail 27 times from January 2016 to January 2020, including the Jan. 3 call in which he asked her to contact Adrian Walker — no relation to Kenneth Walker — to round up bail money for him.
The report also says that on Feb. 13 — a month before Taylor’s death — detectives watched through a pole camera mounted outside the Elliot Avenue house as Taylor and Glover drove up to the house in her black Dodge Charger.
Glover got out and went inside. He came out after a few minutes and they drove off, the report says.
Police previously disclosed in their application to search Taylor’s apartment that another vehicle registered to Taylor, a white 2016 Chevrolet Impala, was seen parked in front of the Elliott Avenue house several times.
… At the end of the day, if I would have been at that house Bre would be alive, bruh. … I don’t shoot at no police.”
