Tribute Weekly Chronicle, a publication in San Juan, Puerto Rico, reports that U.S. Customs and Border officials in San Juan arrested a Carnival cruise passenger last Sunday for possession of cocaine.
The arrest occurred during what is described as a random inspection of passengers arriving from St. Christopher – Nevis. The passenger was sailing on on board the Carnival Victory. U.S. Customs and Border officers arrested Carl Peterkin, a 27 year old U.S. citizen when they located 1,694 grams of cocaine inside his backpack.
His brother, Steven Peterkin, 23, was also arrested on conspiracy charges.
