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. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
