Caymanian businessman Gilroy Bryce Merren returns to the Cayman Islands.
He is now at Northward prison awaiting his parole hearing.
The 52-year-old businessman was serving a nine-year sentence for conspiracy to distribute cocaine in a Georgia jail.
He was arrested in March 2014 in Puerto Rico following a sting operation.
Mr. Merren arrived at Northward prison Wednesday night (19 June) night under the prison transfer treaty, which the Cayman Islands is a party to through the UK.
Mr. Merren became eligible for parole in March 2019 and will remain at Northward prison until a parole hearing date is set.
His family has been told the parole process could take a few months.
