The Bahamas Weekly reports that four Florida residents wre arrested this weekend for possession of pot on a cruise ship moored in Nassau, Bahamas.
The newspaper reports that the incident occurred on Sunday, May 24, 2015.
The report says that “officers from the Tourism Policing Unit acting on intelligence went to a cruise ship moored at Prince George Wharf, where they found the four suspects in possession of a quantity of marijuana.”
Snagging America cruise passengers on cruise ships in the Port of Naasau is big business in the Bahamas. I write about it frequently. The local police don’t bother obtaining a search warrant or establishing probable cause before barging into cruise ship cabins and hauling the passengers off to jail. It’s easy revenue for the island.
The article doesn’t specify the anount of pot (which the Bahamas calls a “dangerous drug”). But if these arrests are similar to the last dozen or so at the port in Nassau, probably not more than a few joints.
Meanwhile Bahamas Weekly reports that the police are asking for public assistance in apprehending the criminals associated with two armed robberies and the murder of a woman whose lifeless body was found over the weekend in a pond near a service road with injuries to her head.
The murder count in the Bahamas, now at 60, is heading for an all-time high.
