A man, who was on August 2, 2006, sentenced to three years in prison in his absence for possession of narcotics, will now spend the next six years in jail.
Adrian Caesar, 39, of 41 Housing Scheme, New Amsterdam, Berbice, appeared at the New Amsterdam Magistrates’ Court on Friday to answer a charge of possession of narcotics for the purpose of trafficking.
This was the second time that Caesar was caught with drugs.
On December 28th, Caesar was found in possession of 9.5g of cannabis for the purpose of trafficking. He pleaded guilty to this charge.
The police prosecutor stated that police on patrol noticed the defendant, for whom an arrest warrant was issued. The prosecutor added that the police approached the defendant who attempted to flee after he threw a plastic bag through his window. He was however overpowered and arrested. The prosecutor said that when the bag was retrieved the marijuana was found concealed within.

Three others, Eze George, Brian Ceres and Junior Simpson who were in the vicinity were also arrested and charged for possession of narcotics. They were remanded to prison and are expected to return to court on January 11th.
