A man who authorities say smuggled more than $1 million in cocaine to the city was found guilty Thursday inside a Manhattan courtroom.
Robert Adrian, 31, is facing life behind bars when sentenced for trafficking, conspiracy and criminal possession of a controlled substance.
Prosecutors say Adrian operated the ring out of a Hampton Inn in Midtown.
They say that in May of 2011, officers seized nearly 95 pounds of cocaine from the location believed to be worth $1.5 million.
Several others were arrested.
Three have pleaded guilty to drug-related charges.
A fourth person was convicted at trial on conspiracy and drug charges.
No date has yet been set for his sentencing.
