Three Pounds of Marijuana Found in Bust at South Shore Plaza

The following information was supplied by the Braintree Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

Police arrested two men Wednesday afternoon for distributing marijuana after they allegedly made a drug deal outside the South Shore Plaza.

The men – Kenneth Sullivan, 23, of Yarmouthport and Nelson C. Delgado, 42, of Riverside, RI – were charged after police uncovered $7,000 in cash and more than three pound of marijuana, Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement.

Officers Matthew Heslam and William Donnellan watched Wednesday as Delgado got into Sullivan's Cadillac Escalade, parked in the fire lane in front of Macy's, empty-handed. Sullivan then drove off and returned shortly thereafter, and Delgado walked away with a shopping bag.

"While speaking with Delgado, Officer Donnellan could smell a strong odor of raw marijuana," Jenkins said. "A subsequent search of the shopping bag uncovered over two pounds of raw marijuana."

Delgado also made statements about who he purchased it from and how much he paid. Heslam, meanwhile, searched Sullivan's truck and found a small amount of weed in the console, more than one pound of marijuana in the back and $7,000 in a plastic bag, Jenkins said.

Both men were charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substances Act. Sullivan was additionally charged with distribution of marijuana.

Thankfully, these desperadoes will appear in court to answer for these heinous offenses. Thus, saving America's women and children from degenerates such as these. This is pathetic. Law enforcement needs to re-direct its focus on crimes... to those that are REAL crimes. I spent 5 years in Federal Prison for a marijuana offense. While I was there, I watched armed bank robbers come and go in as little as 20 months. After 3 years 'behind the wall,' I pointed this out to the parole board. Their response: “You must understand, yours was a very serious offense.” How do you respond to that mentality? I laughed about the parole panel's comment for 2 more years (as I still sat in prison), then wrote my book: Shoulda Robbed a Bank No, it is not a treatise on disproportionate sentences. . I wrote about the escapades that led to my incarceration. I admit, I had a great time. No one was injured, no one was killed, firearms were not involved...there were no victims. We were Americans pursuing happiness in our own way. Harming no one...nor their property. That’s my contribution to helping point out just how ludicrous our pot laws truly are. I would be honored by your review. I wish both of these gentlemen a speedy and complete exoneration.

All card-carrying members of the DEA need to read: Shoulda Robbed a Bank Here is one of its reviews: 5.0 out of 5 stars... If David Sedaris had written 'Catcher in the Rye'..this would be it, June 30, 2012 Amazon Verified Purchase This review is from: Shoulda Robbed a Bank (Kindle Edition) I have never smoked pot in my life...nor do I ever care to. I read about this book in numerous Huffington Post comments. Thought I would read it because I know nothing about marijuana or the people involved with it. I am ecstatic that I did. Funny, Funny, Funny!!! The chapters are like short stories. Stories about unloading boats with helicopters, close encounters with law enforcement, traveling through the jungles of South America. The chapter about the author's first time smoking marijuana made me feel like I was with him...coughing. All of the characters were just a group of loveable, nice guys and girls. Not what I had been raised to believe...hysterical maniacs high on pot bent on death and mayhem. They were nothing like that. If you have ever read any of David Sedaris' books, and like them...you will love Shoulda Robbed a Bank. And the crazy things happening reminded me of Holden Caufield in 'Catcher in the Rye' and the way he staggered through life. The way the words are put together are like nothing I have ever heard. I am sure I will use many of the sayings found in this book just to dazzle my friends. A terrific read. I love this book.

I think they should lock 'em up and throw away the key. Not for the silly marijuana sale, but for being one of those selfish jackholes who feel free to park in the fire lanes.

HeywoodJ... By golly, you are absolutely right! I completely missed the 'fire lane parking'... That young man should be beaten with an axe handle and shot... On the other hand, $7k for 2 pounds of pot...I would like to try some of that... I could at least add my opinion as to his purchase... No matter, I wish these lads a speedy and complete exoneration. Arresting folks for a plant just ain't right.
