BMT Security Defendants Sentenced Following Guilty Plea

Oakland, CA – Alameda County District Attorney Nancy E. O’Malley today announced that defendants Dahood Bey and Rory Parker were sentenced, following their October 7, 2015, guilty pleas to multiple felony counts including grand theft, filing false documents, tax evasion and conspiracy.

Dahood Bey pled no contest to 21 felonies and was sentenced today to serve five years in state prison. His mother, Rory Parker, pled no contest to five felonies and received credit for 235 days already served in County Jail and five years felony probation. Their codefendants, Dahood Bey’s wives Jameelah Bey and Qadirah Bey, along with Basheer Muhammad, Billie Poindexter and Ira Dickerson, all entered no contest pleas in this case at earlier court appearances and are expected to be sentenced next month.

“With today’s sentencing, a long running and complex criminal enterprise has been brought to justice,” says DA O’Malley.

“I thank our partner agencies—the California Franchise Tax Board, the Employment Development Department, the Department of Insurance, the State Compensation Insurance Fund, and the Department of Consumer Affairs, Bureau of Security and Investigative Services, for the collaboration that made this investigation and prosecution strong and effective.”

This case involves a family criminal enterprise, BMT International Security Services, run out of the Black Muslim Temple of Islam No. 1, located at 818 27th Street, Oakland. It was operated by its minister, Dahood Sharrieff Bey, his two wives, Qadirah Najeebah Bey and Jameelah Aasma Muhammad Bey, his mother Rory Vermal Parker aka Amina Hassan Pasha, with the assistance of other Temple members, including Basheer Muhammad and Billie Poindexter. Ira Dickerson, an associate but not a member of the Temple, was also involved in the operation.

BMT International Security Services was an unlicensed and uninsured private security guard company. Through the submission of fraudulent bids BMT secured lucrative contracts with several government entities, including the County of Alameda and the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles. In addition to the fraudulent bids, related charged crimes included grand theft, tax evasion, recording false real estate deeds, and failure to pay worker’s compensation for employees.
