Bermudian jailed in US for smuggling cocaine

A Bermudian man is behind bars in Florida after he tried to smuggle cocaine in his pants as he travelled back to the island.

Micah Jimenez, 40, was jailed after he pleaded guilty to importation of the drug and possession with intent to supply when he appeared at Southern Florida District Court on November 28.

Judge Marcia Cooke sentenced him to serve one year on count one and one day on count two, to be served concurrently.

The court heard earlier that Jimenez, who was stopped in Miami International Airport on his way to Bermuda from the Dominican Republic, had been carrying 295 grams of the drug hidden down the front of his pants.

Jimenez was also ordered to pay $200.
