Mother-son duo charged in Del. prison drug scheme

GEORGETOWN, Del. - A mother and son are facing drug charges, after authorities say they were involved in a drug scheme at a Delaware prison.

The Delaware Department of Corrections says earlier this month 57-year-old Donna Milam, of Avondale, Pennsylvania, mailed an illegal substance to her son, 35-year-old Marco Marin. Marin is apparently an inmate at Sussex Correctional Institution (SCI) in Georgetown. According to officials, investigators noticed that Milam had a visit scheduled with Marin at which time they planned to exchange contraband. Authorities report that they obtained warrants for both Milam and Marin. 

DOC officials say on Tuesday, investigators disrupted their plan and the mother and son were arrested. Both Milam and Marin were charged in both incidents.

Milam was charged with possession with intent to deliver, conspiracy second degree, and promoting prison contraband. She was later turned over to the Deapartment of Corrections on $12,000 secured bail. 

Marin was charged with criminal solicitation second degree, conspiracy second degree, and promoting prison contraband. Marin was issued a $10,000 secured bail. He is currently awaiting trial on unrelated charges.
