One Happy Island … Man caught with 5 kilos of Cocaine in Aruba


Just another case of One Happy Island. So who in Aruba is smuggling 5 kilos back to The CocainepacsNetherlands? Did the ATA say Aruba was known for its white sandy beaches or white powdery substances?

Amigoe, October 31, 2006: Man caught with 5 kilos drugs

ORANJESTAD – Customs officials have run in a man yesterday that tried to smuggle 5 kilos cocaine on a flight to the Netherlands. The 61-year old S.A.H. had put the drugs in 13 packages that he taped on his belly, buttocks, and thighs. H. was discovered when a sniffle dog started to bark on him during the passengers control in the departure hall. The man was handed over to the organized crime department. H. declared that he was in Aruba on vacation and that he was talked into smuggling the drugs.

      He got TALKED into it????? He’d better do better than that.
      What kind of idiot gets TALKED into bording a plane with
      all that extra baggage????

      Now if he said that the Hell’s Angels had taped a heat-
      guided missile to the back of his a**, then, maybe we
      could feel sorry for him!!!!!?*?*?*?*?!!!!!!

      tHink about it ?!?!?!?!?%@$@%%@$@%?!?!?!!?!

      what leader crammed NAFTA down our throats, said like or not that’s the way it is and stated a border fence is not the cure and now wants to build a fence -

      what leader said there’s an angel is the whirlwind and won by one vote with a cow poke smile and gesture that resembled alfred newman of mad magazine -

      what leader swore on the bible to protect all americans when he took office and turned his back and denied his state departments help to a crying mother in search of her daughter while the aruban gov’t told the parents to look in the landfill –

      this leader will not be admitted thru the pearly gates of heaven; because he lied

      I love it when you call the dog a “SNIFFLE” dog. That’s
      so cute…….

      I wonder, what did that dog do to him??!?!?*****!!!!!!!!

      OHHHHHHH, my God… I can just picture him now, sweat
      rolling off his face like the gentle flow of a river
      with this dog that just can’t seem to get enough of

      No wonder he said he was “TALKED” into it…arn’t we all

      He is only limited to 3 kilos, the legal amount to be carried onto a plane for Holland.

    7. IndyDan on October 31st, 2006 8:59 pm

      Ha! Who caught him? I doubt it was the lead narcotic investigater, Dennis Jacobs. He was surely busy feeding his face.

    8. Patti on October 31st, 2006 9:01 pm

      Geeeeee……. I wonder if there were any sex slaves on
      that plane, as Holland seems to be the center of it all.
      Only a short motorcycle away from Moscow, with well over
      a million mothers crying for their babies. Watson, Don’t
      you think someone should look into that???

      Geeeeee…. I wonder, could Aruba be involved????????!!!!!

    9. Houston on October 31st, 2006 9:53 pm

      Sex slaves? State Deparment says there are 25,000 in Holland…so there had to sex slaves on the plane.

    10. Patti on October 31st, 2006 10:12 pm

      Well, Watson, what do you think????

      I think that we need to get our government off their you
      know whats and do something!!!! Why don’t we have a
      Europol agency designated to finding the missing?????

      Does EVERYTHING have to come down to the price per barrel?

      The United States needs to check themselves out. Are we
      in support of the exploitation of the innocent? If not,
      perhaps it would be a good idea to proove it. Certainly,
      they don’t expect the families of the countless number
      of women, including Natalee, to do it all by themselves???
      And, although Natalee’s family have done an excellent job,
      one still has to ask:


    11. dutchhog on October 31st, 2006 10:24 pm

      this guy really plays the morron card!!houston is right if he “only” smuggled 3 kilo’s he would have walked,after the hearing!compared to the hundreds of kilo’s shipped in the rotterdam harbor weekly,they might as well let this chickenfeed go through! even a couple of marines where caught a while ago!! on a marine ship!!they where there on an anti drugs campaine!!LOL!!

    12. Patti on October 31st, 2006 10:41 pm

      realtruth: You speak the truth. But how do we change it?
      He was going to become the new president whether he won or
      not… so how do we keep ourselves pumped up to vote in a
      race that is already corrupt, long before you ever get to
      the poles? He won all the Southern states, or most of them;
      and then he let our people down in his quest for oil instead
      of his people. How did we ever get here????????????????????

    13. Patti on October 31st, 2006 11:00 pm


      Are you serious, there is really THAT much cocaine on Aruba?
      You’d better keep it on the low, otherwise all our good
      biker club buddies are going to be buying homes to retire
      there AND digging out their basements.

      I’m from San Francisco where our biker-types are big and mean. They try to pass themselves off as X-Marines, but we know that they’re really just a bunch of human smuggling whores. Ohhhhh, San Francisco, the city of schemes.

      Atleast you don’t have THAT to contend with… atleast not yet…???… The world is becoming smaller and smaller.

    14. Ramlady on October 31st, 2006 11:12 pm

      #2; real b.s.: NAFTA was approved under CLINTON, and Democrats and Republicans were for it; so get over yourself, and stop trying to make every story on this blog about Bush and Republicans. You are pathetic and ridiculous.

    15. dutchhog on November 1st, 2006 12:09 am

      patti,LMAO!!!why do you think the hells angels just opened a chapter on curacao!!!LOL!!!but i know for sure that their not into people smuggling!but that just basically because it’s to much of a hastle and not enough money in it !!but drugs is their game ,everybody knows that!!AFFA LOL!!(and i don’t think their that happy with this SPOTLIGHT on the antillies either)

    16. John on November 1st, 2006 12:36 am

      Yeah, that’s it another one going to Holland. I hear the planes from Aruba to Miami are all full. Great market the old USA.

      lol Ramlady!

      everybody tryin to rewrite history…..

    18. Patti on November 1st, 2006 3:58 am

      Dutchhog: It’s just that I am trying to figure out why
      a biker type would have a torture chamber in his basement
      in a city that has massage parlors, bath houses and cat
      houses? Remember, they are not just into drugs. They
      are definately into prostitution and money laundering,

      I may be way off the mark here, but I just thought that maybe he trained his working girls, that he extradicted from Russia, there?!? maybe, maybe….maybe?

    19. Patti on November 1st, 2006 4:01 am

      And just as John said, the United States is the biggest
      market for drugs, as well as, Russian Brides, call girls,
      prostitutes and sex slaves……..

    20. Richard on November 1st, 2006 6:40 am

      “The man was handed over to the organized crime department.”

      Hey, I thought that was basically what Aruba was anyway.

      Probably he’ll be made an example of; they want to restrict the drug trafficking to their own people. Don’t want any interlopers.

      Remember, also, the Dutch military have been prominent in drug trafficking. Recently a big stash of cocaine was found on a Dutch navy ship … sent to the Caribbean to fight the drug traffickers! And in the 1990s a huge amount of cocaine was found on a Dutch military plane that had returned to the Netherlands.

      With friends like those ….

      By the way, here’s something to keep in mind. The lead article in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal was about radio stations in Miami and that area which broker their air time; in other words, people can buy an hour’s worth of radio time and use it for whatever they want to say.

      Apparently some of these stations sell time for $500 an hour or less. And the signals of some of these stations can reach into the Caribbean … though I’m not sure that they go as far as Aruba.

      But this might somehow prove to be an effective way of delivering a message to the ordinary people of Aruba, assuming that ads were first placed in their newspapers telling them to listen to their radios at such-and-such an hour on such-and-such a day. Getting a native speaker of Papiamento to explain, say, the motivation for a boycott and why the Aruban government is betraying its own people, as well as the American people, by its actions and inactions in the Natalee Holloway case might be a cost-effective way of communicating.

      Perhaps Jossy Mansur’s papers could run the ads and give such an effort a write-up.

      The Wall Street Journal article was concerned with the way some con artists bought time and then used it to try to defraud immigrants. Our concerns, however, would be different, so there shouldn’t be a problem.

    21. Patti on November 1st, 2006 7:10 am

      Oooohhhhhhh!!!!!! I misquoted John~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Well, read it for yourself…..?!?!?!?????!!!!!!!!

      I want to hear about the doggie…. What did they do
      with it?????

      A) Did they make it their National Good Dog of the Day???

      B) Did they Snatch him from the lady with the purse and
      _____make him a Real police dog???


      c) Did they shoot him in the head when no one was looking?

      of course, as is the ol’ monkey standard there is always:

      D) Other

      Does ANYBODY know what happened to my mother’s DOG????????

      (you a{{edit}}…..wake up!!!!!!!)

    22. Patti on November 1st, 2006 7:19 am

      Richard: Thank God you’re awake… I think that would
      be a good idea, if it could reach Aruba. And I especially
      like the other part. I think I’m gonna fire Watson and
      hang out with you for a while… I like the way you THINK!

      Do you think these people are really deceiving all of us?

    23. realtruth on November 1st, 2006 8:37 am

      Under pressure from Salinas and Bush, negotiators completed a trade agreement which was signed by both presidents in Aug. of 1992. Newly-elected President Bill Clinton submitted the agreement – my err, george’s daddy is the culprit. nver seen alfred senior.

      ramlady – your use of words when you address someone shows your ignorance.

    24. Caroline on November 1st, 2006 8:57 am

      Every week in Diario there is a picture of someone in handcuffs at the Reina Beatrix Airport who was caught attempting to smuggle drugs out of Aruba. This is the norm in Aruba.

    25. Freebrid on November 1st, 2006 9:41 am

      K2 brothers was sending Joran a Halloween gift!! He must have had a big party to go to (Drug a Date)!

    26. Freebrid on November 1st, 2006 9:47 am

      #24 I guess Aruba wants to make sure they keep all their drugs in Aruba. One happy Island.

    27. vicki on November 1st, 2006 10:34 am

      This idiot forgot to grease the pockets of those in charge. What a joke this is. Maybe it was johnm hahahahahahha

    28. diverboy on November 1st, 2006 1:00 pm

      Sounds like the sniffle dog is the only law enforcement agent that knows what he’s doing in Aruba.

    29. Dave on November 1st, 2006 3:17 pm

      Vicki, LOL I think johnm may be too busy keeping track of his multiple user names for his multiple personalties

    30. chris on November 1st, 2006 5:18 pm

      Why haven’t we heard anything on the ruling yet, unless it didn’t happen today. Sure has been quiet here lately and so without all $$$$$$$%%%%%!!!!!!!?????. Thanks Klaasend….chris

    31. Richard on November 1st, 2006 8:07 pm

      Our Aruban poster Linda said (on another thread, I guess) that the judge who was supposed to hear the arguments, or whatever, didn’t show up. So the Kalpoe quest has been delayed until another date … she didn’t say what it was.

      Very interesting … maybe the Dutch have told them not to do anything until THEY decide what they’re going to do? Or maybe they’ve given the signal that giving in to the Kalpoes is likely to blow up in Aruba’s face? (As if that ever mattered to Aruba.)

      Thanks, Patti (#22) … not quite sure which parts of my post you liked, but it’s always good to hear kudos.

    32. Ramlady on November 1st, 2006 9:59 pm

      #23; real b.s.: There you go again….I am not the one always trying to make every story on this blog about Bush. You are a left-wing demagogue completely uninterested in the truth about any subject. You throw out ridiculous statements that you cannot back up and try to twist every story on here to get your potshots in at Bush and Republicans. Did you ever get your calculator repaired or read the directions on its use regarding your competely b.s. figures regarding the federal budget deficit?

      Regarding your earlier potshot regarding NAFTA, my previous comment still stands true. CLINTON submitted the agreement to the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives in November 1993. The House passed it Nov. 17, 1993. The Democrat-controlled Senate approved it 3 days later. The concept of a free trade agreement with Mexico goes back to 1979 during the CARTER administration. However, it was not discussed in earnest until 1990 between Bush 41 and Mexican President Salinas. Bush 41 and Salinas negotiated the agreement in August 1992. Bill Clinton strongly supported free trade, along with most of his Democrat allies. Opposition came from some anti-trade Republicans, protectionist Democrats, and supporters of Ross Perot. As I said before, there were supporters on both sides of the aisle in Congress, and there were opponents on both sides of the aisle. The most common point of debate over NAFTA was its potential effects on employment in the U.S. It was acknowledged by both proponents and opponents that some jobs in the U.S. would be lost to Mexico as a result of NAFTA while some new jobs would be created in the U.S. because of free trade with Mexico.

      There was nothing in my previous comment that is untrue while anyone with an ounce of desire to seek the truth can see your obvious anti-Bush hatred and bias in almost all of your comments.

    33. Patti on November 1st, 2006 10:25 pm

      Ramlady: I’ll tell you right up front… I hate Bush, too.
      So now what ya gonna do??? Is it the hating part that you
      can’t stand or the fact that ANY body ANYwhere can say what
      they want???

      I suggest that you go back to Texas and look at your style
      of living and if anything, report on that!!! I wonder, how
      much was your cooling bill this summer??? Let’s talk about
      that AND THEN, we can talk about the free-trade agreement.

      And just for those that are confused about the agreement,
      it was for the tax-free exchange of PRODUCT from the U.S.,
      Mexico and Canada. The free-trade agreement has nothing to
      do with our current state of affairs, does it??? It seems
      to me, that it was a way of expanding our horizons
      (possibly to effect an allegiance between our peaceful
      neighbors)… not a poor excuse for endless, mindless

      You all can spend all your time splitting the atom, if you
      like, or we can find out the reason why someone would want to. What’s more important, who’s right, or who’s wrong.

    37. Ramlady on November 2nd, 2006 12:01 am

      #33; Patti my dear: I was NOT the one who injected George Bush and NAFTA into a story about a man being caught with cocaine in Aruba. You and real B.S. can hate Bush all you want if that is what you want to spend your time on. I don’t care. It is also your right to speak about whatever you wish; however, when one speaks out of ignorance and obvious hatred, all that is accomplished is looking like a fool. This story has NOTHING to do with Bush or NAFTA, and it is my opinion that posters such as real b.s. only want to come on here and insert their left-wing agenda into even non-political stories. BTW, I don’t live in Texas, and what does how much my electric bill was this summer have to do with ANYTHING?? Do you see a vast right-wing conspiracy there too??? Did Bush and the Republicans cause the record-breaking high temperatures this summer?? ROFLMAO!!! I really do not give two hoots in hell what you think about NAFTA either. Real b.s. stated it was GWB who “crammed NAFTA down our throats,” and I corrected him/her that it was people in BOTH parties that supported it, and people in both parties opposed it. It was approved by CLINTON and the Democrat-controlled House and Senate in 1993. That is a fact. If that fact does not suit someone’s liberal Bush-bashing agenda, may I suggest they get over it. No one has tried to keep you from voicing your opinion, and I will continue to voice mine as well.

    38. Patti on November 2nd, 2006 12:23 am

      Ramlady: You are absolutely, possitively without even a
      glimpse of doubt – RIGHT…

      That was my point exactly – and to tell you the truth,
      my comment about Texas was only a joke. Afterall, it
      is I that is mad as h*** about my electric bill. I’m
      sorry I dumped all over you. But you see, my mother’s
      dog is missing and now she can’t find her purse and I
      was rather hoping that perhaps we could spend more time
      on the REAL important issues at hand. But you’re right,
      the world shouldn’t have to stop just cause I am miserable
      and have not even an inclin on how we are going to pay
      our bills.

      So you go get ‘em, girl… I’m sorry.

      But, in the meantime, if you happen to see a rather dumb
      looking dog with white powder on his nose snooping around
      in your garden, can you please give me a call????

      I think I’ll go to bed now…………..

      if you got a problem paying your bills, i know a way to make a little money!!!really quick to!!!just don’t walk past that damn dog!!!WOOF!!!

    41. dutchhog on November 2nd, 2006 1:35 am

      patti,is it an alsatian?…without any teeth…very nervous… and a stupid look on his face!HE’S HERE!HE’S HERE!!i think he smelled my stash!.i’am going to keep him!we call him rudolf cause of the color of his nose!

    42. Patti on November 2nd, 2006 3:26 am

      Uuuuuuuuum, okay, I guess. As long as he’s going to a good
      home, that’s all I worry about. But please, don’t take him
      to airports; he goes ape s*it and we never know what he
      might do. He accusted (?) a passanger. It was a terrible
      mess, they had to pour water on him.

      But don’t you think that I should receive, atleast a reward
      or something???? I mean that is about the best SNIFFIN dog
      we have ever had. Why, I can even remember the first time
      that dog was hit by a car… On yeah, about that reward?

      Oh. Okay. You say that he is NOT an Alsatian with a big,
      bright red nose… okay. He’s NOT real dumb lookin’ with a
      dazed and confused look in his eye? Okay, well, thank you
      very much, I hope you find the real owner.

      That was a guy who found a dog but it wasn’t Sniffy…
      Now, don’t worry, we’ll find him.

      (One less thing ta worry ’bout)


      Dutch hog….. you’re my hero~~~~~~~

    43. dennisintn on November 2nd, 2006 1:01 pm

      if it’s a small dog, carry it anywhere but the vds compound. small dogs and small american girls don’t have a very good survival rate around there.
