Three NCL Crew Members Imprisoned for Smuggling Cocaine

Five men have been arrested in New Orleans Riverwalk shopping mall for smuggling over 4 kilograms of cocaine. Among arrested are three crew members working onboard Norwegian Cruise Line cruise ship Norwegian Dawn. Federal agents say that the arrest happened on Sunday morning after the crew members entered the nearby shopping mall Riverwalk located next to the New Orleans cruise terminal. Two crew members identified as Asbert Lowmans and Jean Louis were busted in the restroom carrying a shoulder bag with six packs of cocaine. The third crew member identified as Esias Felicien, left the restroom before the bust and was arrested shortly after together with another suspect identified as Kevin John. Felicien was arrested with a shopping bag containing a “used smugglers’ girdle,” and John was carrying a shopping bag with a package of cocaine.

Once in custody all three crew members admitted smuggling cocaine, and agreed to cooperate with the federal agents. They told the agents that they needed to deliver the cocaine to the Jamaican man known as “Uncle” in SpringHill Suites hotel. Later the authorities arrested the Jamaican identified as Alfred Dennison, with $19,000 wrapped in a plastic bag — money intended for purchase of the cocaine. Authorities have seized total of 4.75 kilograms of cocaine with estimated value of $130. 000.
