Brothers who had 120lbs of cocaine in their semi & said they didn’t know, found not guilty

VALPARAISO — Two brothers nabbed with just more than 120 pounds of cocaine were found not guilty early Wednesday evening on felony counts of dealing the illegal drug.

The verdict, which came back around 4:30 p.m. after two hours of deliberations, came one day after a defense attorney told the Porter County jury his clients did not know the illegal drug was inside the semi truck they were driving.

Attorney Jason Jackson said Baljinder Singh and Gurwinder Singh, both of California, don’t dispute that the large amount of cocaine was found in the rear of the truck and both were cooperative during the Dec. 7, 2020 seizure and arrests.

But prosecutors have no evidence showing the brothers were aware of the drug, he said.
