Tourists from Washington tried to carry drugs on a cruise ship in Miami
On Sunday, two tourists from Washington, DC, were arrested on charges of trying to smuggle drugs onto a cruise ship in the port of Miami.
According to the arrest report, a special agent of the Ministry of National Security intercepted emails from 35-year-old government contractor Peter Meléndez and 27-year-old Robert Koehler, who discussed the strategy of smuggling drugs into the ship and selling them to people on board, writes Local10.
Police said emails were intercepted via Meléndez’s computer issued to him by the state.
According to the arrest report, a specially trained dog from the K-9 service conducted a routine check of passengers and focused on the luggage of both suspects.
Police said several batches of drugs were found in the baggage, including alleged MDMA, ketamine, Viagra, Adderall and GMH.
Both men were arrested on drug trafficking charges. Melendez faces an extra time for conspiring with MDMA traffic.
