Aruba, Cruise Ships, and Drugs (Oh my).


From Amigo, December 14, 2005: Cruise ship passenger caught with drugs

The Dutch translations of article, Cruisepassagier betrapt met drugs.

The most talked about stories lately have been regarding cruise ships and Aruba as it relates to the Natalee Holloway investigation. Seems as though Amigoe has managed to combine the two, ‘Cruise ship passenger caught with drugs’.

ARUBA — An American cruise ship passenger that took a tour of the island while in Aruba was arrested by the custom detectives when he wanted to go on board of the Carnival Destiny with cocaine and marijuana that he had bought on the island. His pockets were actually searched for a metal object that showed up on the monitor, which turned out to be a cigarette lighter.

The district attorney confiscated the drugs and after he had paid the 250 dollar fine, he was permitted to board the ship. From his interrogation, the police found out that he was on Baby Beach and in San Nicolas. A cab-driver told him that Carlos & Charlie’s was a good place to buy drugs, but that he could take him to a place where he can buy enough to make his trip m ore pleasant. Another person got into the taxi and took him to a white house in San Nicolas. He paid 100 dollars for the drugs.

Amazing how these stories always have a common denominator. That same name keeps popping up.
