In the never ending war on drugs, the SKNVibes newspaper in St. Kitts reports that its the port police seized 2 grams of pot in a cabin on the Celebrity Silhouette cruise ship after the pot had been discovered by ship security. The local police brought on a sniffer dog. Here’s the article:
"A quantity of drugs were recently removed from a cruise ship after being discovered by security personnel and handed over to the local police.
Information reaching SKNVibes indicates that sometime after 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday (Apr. 4) police were informed by the Security Manager of St. Christopher Air and Sea Port Authority, Raymond Cotton, that approximately two grams of what was suspected to be cannabis sativa were found aboard the M.V Celebrity Silhouette while docked at Port Zante.
Police arrived at Port Zante sometime after 8:30 a.m., a search was conducted and the drugs were found inside a cabin.
A dog from the Custom Canine Division was used to conduct further searches in the area where the cannabis was found but no more of the illegal drugs were located.
No one was arrested."
