One of the heirs to the Roe fortune, Bradley Roe, was in trouble with the law after he was allegedly busted with cocaine near the Ramada Princess Hotel on January. However, the 25-year-old was cleared of the charge on Thursday, March 3, when test results were presented to the court which revealed that the substance was negative for cocaine and heroine. The forensic examination was conducted by the Forensic Laboratory in Ladyville. With that, the prosecutor in the case, Sgt. Claude Pitts, informed Magistrate Carlon Mendoza that he was withdrawing the charge since he had no case without a positive result. Magistrate Mendoza then told Roe that he was free to go.

On Sunday, January 3, Police Constable Allan Domingo responded to a report and visited the Ramada Hotel and Casino where onboard a vessel “Charlie 22013” he saw a Hispanic male later identified as Bradley Roe. He was wearing a navy blue shirt, long blue jeans and slippers. PC Domingo approached and informed him that he will conduct a search for illegal drugs and firearm. Roe complied and during the search the officer found a small transparent plastic bag containing powdery substance suspected to be cocaine in his left pants pocket. As a result of the discovery, Roe was escorted to the police station where the suspected cocaine was weighed in his presence and amounted to 0.02 grams.   In court, Bradley Roe was represented by Attorney, Liesje Barrow/Chong who said she knew the case would not go far given the disclosure of the forensic lab report that said the substance that the police allege they found her client with tested negative.

Bradley Roe was supported by a number of family members in court; including his father who has been by his side from the day of his arraignment.
