ALBANY (WALB) - A trip to the parole office will likely result in a trip back to prison for an Albany man.

34-year-old Michael Najjar gave some indication Tuesday morning to his parole officer he was back up to his old tricks dealing drugs.

They searched his home in the 1900 block of Forest Glenn Drive and found packaged meth, Xanax, and ecstasy.

Najjar was released from prison in November after serving time for a meth conviction.

"When we walked in and found something that was criminal, then we notified the drug unit for them to step in with criminal prosecution," said ALbany Chief Parole Officer Leslie Lamb.

"This is not a new name to us. And most of these people who are dealing drugs keep their connections. It's just a matter of getting out of the system and re-establishing them," said ADDU Asst. Commander Andy Exum.

Investigators also seized a samurai sword and blow gun from the home.

If convicted, Najjar could face life in prison as a third strike offender.
