News outlets are reporting that a cruise passenger sailing to Port Everglades from the Bahamas was arrested after the U.S. Customs & Border Protection discovered 2.4 pounds of cocaine in the man’s luggage and additional drugs taped to his ankles.
LOCAL 10 News and Breaking 911 report that "Customs officers noticed the man nervously moving items in his luggage as he was being questioned, so they inspected the luggage and found two packages of cocaine inside."
The articles say that the passenger was arriving on a "cruise ferry" from the Bahamas on August 13th.
The Customs and Border Protection, like many Federal agencies, did not disclose the name of the cruise company in question.
