Man sentenced to two years in prison on drug smuggling charges

A man who admitted to captaining a drug smuggling boat that began taking on water during its journey to Florida was yesterday sentenced to two years in prison.

Delmon Parker, 38, of Murphy Town, Abaco, pleaded guilty to charges of possession of dangerous drugs with intent to supply, exportation of dangerous drugs and conspiring to commit the offenses, at his arraignment before Acting Deputy Chief Magistrate Subusola Swain.

Police seized 144 pounds of marijuana from the disabled vessel on June 16.

His co-accused – Jamaine Cooper, 27, of McKinney Drive, Joe Pierre, 24, of Ridgeland Park, and Norman McDonald, of Jamaica – pleaded not guilty and were denied bail.

They will have to apply to the Supreme Court for bail and return to court on August 2 for trial.
