This wasn’t your typical vacation.
12 people were arrested this weekend for allegedly trafficking contraband in Cheetos chip bags and ceramic bowls while on a crusie ship, according to NYDN.
The article says that police from the UK’s National Crime Agency locked up 12 people in connection to carrying $2.6 million of cocaine on a cruise ship. Six men and six women were arrested between the ages of 20 and 52.
The article says, “they were arrested in Madeira, Portugal, and will be tried in that country’s court system.” Take a look at what authorities found:
