Another prison officer is likely to spend Christmas in the cold confines of a jail cell.
The rank was nabbed yesterday at the Lusignan Prison with 70 grammes of suspected marijuana stashed in his underwear. He is believed to have been delivering the narcotic to a prisoner.
Kaieteur News understands, that the rank reported for duty at around 06:45 hrs. He was subjected to a routine search.
According to reports, after the suspected narcotics was discovered, the prison officer claimed that he felt pressured into taking it for an inmate who had insisted on having his ‘weed’.
