Drug Dog Found Ecstasy In Passenger Luggage For Holy Ship Cruise

Drug dog exposed ecstasy ahead oh Holy Ship!

Passengers boarded Holy Ship Cruise in Florida, but not before being thoroughly searched for drugs and illicit materials. Part of the search process was conducted with drug dogs and, according to Brevard County sheriff’s spokesman Tod Goodyear, one dog was sniffing luggage and alerted officers to a baggie in which powder was found, which was determined to be ecstasy at a later time.

A short time after finding the baggie, the dog began showing the effects of drug exposure. “(The dog) started having some problems with balance and had some type of seizure incident of some sort, was showing effects of having inhaled some substance,” said Goodyear. “They administered the Narcan and got (the dog) to the vet as quick as they could.

“I know that Narcan is generally for opiates and Ecstasy would be an amphetamine, so I don’t know if it would be of any assistance to the K-9 at all.”

The dog was taken to a veterinarian and is now in stable condition, while over a dozen people were arrested for offenses including drug possession before 12.0 set sail this past weekend. 13.0 returns on Saturday.
