Cops: St. Mary suspect gave inmate pot in courtroom
Jay Vise Reporting
A man in St. Mary Parish is behind bars after police say he delivered contraband drugs to an inmate in the unlikeliest of places: Inside a courtroom.
According to St. Mary Parish Sheriff Spokeswoman Traci Landry, deputies found a package of marijuana and tobacco on an inmate who was already in custody on an unrelated charge.
Landry says detectives began back-tracking the inmate to see where he may have gotten the contraband. Using video surveillance footage from in and around the courtroom, police say that Dennis Delasbour (above) was seen entering and exiting the courtroom as he "dropped a package containing marijuana and tobacco."
The inmate, Ivory Fine, was arrested and may face additional time. Officers then arrested Delasbour for allegedly delivering the weed and smokes to the courtroom.
According to Landry, no bond has yet been set for Delasbour.
