Feds Raid Jam Fest Cruise Embarkation - 15 Arrested
The Orlando Sentinel
is reporting that a popular music cruise, Jam Fest
, was raided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents before the MSC Poesia set sail. The agency was looking for illegal drugs and contraband while it was docked at Port Everglades.
The paper reports there were 15 seizures of Marijuana; LSD; mushrooms, hash oil; Ecstasy; prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia in mostly small quantities, according to a CBP spokeswoman' Migdalia Travis.
The names of those arrested were not released. MSC Cruises said it would have to confirm the report before making a comment.
Agents and K-9 officers from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement; the U.S.Marshals Service; U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the Broward Sheriff's Office participated in the raid, according to the CBP spokesperson.
This was the 9th Jam Cruise with the name Jam Fest. The cruise was promoted (fittingly?) by "Cloud 9 Adventures" and they call their loyalty program the "Repeat Offenders."
