The Miami Herald reports that two government contractors have been arrested for trying to smuggle drugs aboard a cruise ship.
The report identifies the suspects as 35-year-old Peter Melendez and 27-year-old Robert Koehler, who were arrested on Sunday at PortMiami on suspicion of trying to board the cruise ship with the intent to distribute the contraband. The report did not identify the name of the ship that the men attempted to board.
The report says that authorities found the men with MDMA, Ketamine and GHB, which is widely known as a date-rape drug.
The pair, which work for an undisclosed contracting firm in Washington, D.C. reportedly discussed the scheme in emails on government issued computers, leading to their capture.
