A 29-year-old man from 1015 Kilcoy/ Chesney Settlement, Corentyne, Berbice, was caught with 2 grammes of marijuana in a parcel stashed in his underwear yesterday morning at the New Amsterdam Prison.
A statement from the Guyana Prison Service (GPS) said that Safraaz Hossein visited the jailhouse at about 10:30hrs to drop off personal items for his brother, Sultun Hossein and was observed acting in a strange manner.
Jail staff became suspicious and upon strip-searching, the officer noticed the contraband in his underpants, the GPS said.
He was immediately arrested and told of the offence. Hossein is to appear in court today.
