Allure of the Seas Cruise Ship Passenger Drug Bust Miami Florida – On Sunday, February 3, 2019, Peter Melendez, 35, and Robert Koehler, 27, from Washington, DC were two cruise passengers aboard Royal Caribbean Cruise Line ship Allure of the Seas for an Atlantis Events Allure Caribbean Cruise, who were charged with conspiracy to traffic in illegal drugs and trafficking in illegal drugs.
After the men were spotted, a K-9 by the name of Bill alerted police to the drugs the men were carrying. Drug dog Bill found 27 grams of MDMA, 18 grams of ketamine, 246 grams of GHB, 7 grams of Viagra and 5 grams of Adderall in their luggage, according to the police report.
The two men had been arrested, partially since the government had intercepted emails sent from Melendez, who is a government contractor, where he mentioned plans to smuggle and distribute the drugs as soon as they were on board the cruise ship Allure of the Seas. Melendez posted a photo of himself standing in front of the White House on Veterans Day November 11, 2018. There go some Veterans benefits.
Incarcerated Veterans do not forfeit their eligibility for medical care; however, current regulations restrict VA from providing hospital and outpatient care to an incarcerated Veteran who is an inmate in an institution of another government agency when that agency has a duty to give the care or services.
Veterans may inform VA to have their benefits resumed within 30 days or less of their anticipated
release date based on evidence from a parole board or other official prison source showing the
Veteran’s scheduled release date.
The event was advertised as a 7-night Caribbean cruise with calls at Nassau, Bahamas, Cozumel. Mexico and Costa Maya, Mexico before returning to Miami.
