A BRUNEIAN man was jailed for three years by Bandar Seri Begawan’s Magistrate’s Court yesterday after he pleaded guilty to consuming meth.
Mohammed Bahrin bin Haji Awang Rabaie was arrested in a raid by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) agents at a house in Perpindahan Serasa along with other arrested persons at about 2.45am on April 16, 2012.
Magistrate Shahyzul Rahman further heard from the NCB’s Prosecuting Officer that the defendant’s urine sample tested positive for the class A drug.
The three year jail sentence was handed down by the magistrate also considering the fact that the defendant has had a number of drugs abuse convictions.
