A Prisoner at the Lusignan jailhouse who is currently serving a one year sentence for larceny could now find himself facing some additional time with his new friends.
The Guyana Prison Service has reported that the prisoner (name not released), was found on Saturday with 71 grams of marijuana in sole of the slippers he was wearing.
He was reportedly searched after returning to the main prison after assisting with the delivery of meals to the holding area.
