Man Charged In Plot To Sneak Narcotics Into County Jail

A third man was arrested Sunday in connection with a plot to smuggle narcotics into the Greene County Detention Center.

David L. Sicilia, 28, of Hiawatha Road, Morristown, was charged with being a party to the offense of introduction of drugs into a secure institution, and possession of Schedule II drugs with intent to sell or deliver.

On July 18, Sicilia allegedly bonded out inmate Matthew D. Norton, gave him a package containing 10 morphine pills and helped Norton "get himself arrested again" for public intoxication several hours later, so he could be booked back into the jail, sheriff's Deputy Chuck Humphreys said in a report.

Norton allegedly tried to smuggle in the morphine and two syringes, wrapped in black tape and concealed inside his body. The drugs were to be delivered to an inmate in the jail, the report said.

Norton, 28, and another man, inmate Steven Howard Berry, 49, of Morristown, were charged last month in connection with the plot.

A report by Humphreys said that Berry allegedly induced Norton to try to smuggle drugs into the jail "by knowingly arranging to have (Norton) at the Greene County Detention Center bonded out and to get himself arrested for public intoxication a few hours later and bring in Schedule II drugs and syringes."

Bond for Sicilia was set at $20,000. He was scheduled to appear today in General Sessions Court.

Berry and Norton had first General Sessions Court appearances last month.
