A young 18-year-old Guyanese was sentenced to three years in prison by the Nîmes criminal court, including one year suspended.

He was appearing for possession, transport, and smuggling of narcotics.

He had been arrested Monday at Nîmes station by customs officers.

While he told the agents to come and spend a month's vacation with his cousin, he did not have a suitcase.

He was carrying only a bag, in which the investigators found an extinguished telephone, a drug to delay intestinal transit and a plane ticket.
