ROAD TOWN Tortola VI - A man who was found with a large quantity of cocaine earlier this year is still awaiting sentencing in the court of law.

Daron Walters, who had his vehicle searched by officers of the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) on March 16, 2017, was taken into custody after they unearthed a large quantity of cocaine -  14 blocks of cocaine valuing over $1.5 million.

He appeared in the Magistrate's Court on December 12, 2017 at which time he was scheduled for sentencing; however, that was not the case as his attorney requested additional time to address certain matters with him.

Magistrate Ayanna O. Baptiste-DaBreo honoured the request and has set January 15, 2018 as the new sentencing date.

Wrap sheet 

Walters became a subject of police drag nets on more than one occasion this year. 

On December 7, 2017 the confessed drug mule was sentenced to 22 months imprisonment with a fine of $26,475 to be paid by June 2018 or an additional 6 months in prison.

The 30-year-old Fat Hogs Bay resident had in his possession 706 grams of marijuana, 

He was charged for possession of cocaine and possession of cocaine with intent to supply to another.

Walters had pleaded guilty.

    He was not a Mule. The drugs were found in his car not his body. A Mule carries it inside his body and defacate it out when they arrive to their drop off point. The Mule is the only one taking a risk.
