Grandmother and son-in-law convicted of trafficking over 14 pounds of weed

Dellis Mariano

Sixty-nine year old Dellis Mariano and her son-in-law Deon Wright were both convicted of drug trafficking today when they appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith.  The grandmother was one of three persons arrested following a search of their residence on Nurse White Street in Belize City which turned up a parcel of marijuana.

Deon Wright

Initially charged were Dellis Mariano, her daughter Kissy Wright, Deon Wright and Rodleisha Colliard; however, in court this morning Kissy Wright and Rodleisha Colliard were dismissed of the charge.  Mariano and her son-in-law were each fined ten thousand dollars, two thousand of which they had to pay upfront.  While the elderly woman was able to meet her payment, Deon Wright was unable to do so and was transported to the Hattieville Prison this evening.
