Fort Myers Man Sentenced To Prison For Methylone Drug Conspiracy

Fort Myers, Florida – U.S. District Judge John E. Steele has sentenced Titus Lamar Bellot (28, Fort Myers) to five years in federal prison for conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute the controlled substance methylone. He was convicted by a federal jury on February 13, 2015.

According to the testimony presented during the three-day trial, on April 21, 2014, United States Customs and Border Protection officials at an international mail facility in New York encountered an International Express Mail parcel from the People’s Republic of China.  After searching the parcel, they determined that it contained methylone. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations agents made a controlled delivery of the package to an address in Lehigh Acres. Deena Williams, who was convicted after a jury trial on February 5, 2015, accepted the package.  Agents then entered the house and discovered that Williams had opened the package and removed the drugs. Bellot came to the house a short time later to pick up the drugs. Further investigation revealed that the package belonged to him.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.  It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jeffrey F. Michelland.
