Recent Drug Bust on Princess Ship gives new meaning to Come Back New

Australian authorities say three women from Canada have been charged with smuggling cocaine on a Princess Cruises ship. Australian Border Force commander Tim Fitzgerald said about $22 million worth of cocaine -- nearly $30 million in Australian dollars -- was hidden in their bags. A search of two cabins uncovered suitcases with 95 kilograms of cocaine.

According to Fitzgerald, it is the largest drug bust of its kind on a cruise ship.

I guess they were on the HIGH sea's Big Smile

.... Too many bad jokes I can make... I'm going to keep my mouth shut Surprised

Well, I guess someone had to try getting away with something like this. Ummm, I rather be sailing than jailin.

I wonder if they will have to pay their bill?

The two gals and one guy are in custody. What a way to ruin a world cruise.

Princess probably got the reward money for turning them in ...

More like what a way to ruin your life!

They will have life------in the hoosegow.

Yep. Two young pretty girls from Canada doing possible life. Australia takes smuggling very seriouse. They wanted to euthanize Johnny Depps dogs. The coke these girls brought in is huge. They are gonna get screwed but not in the way they are used to or enjoyed.

30 million Canadian dollars (23 mil I think US) and there is a 3rd older gentleman, but all I read was it is not clear if he is linked (Yet he had more coke in the bags they found in his room)
