Man arrested on Royal Caribbean ship pleads guilty to drug charges
Steven Barry Krumholz was arrested on Royal Caribbea's Allure of the Seas in February under suspicion of selling drugs and plead guilty in a U.S. Virgin Islands court to dealing drugs on board a cruise ship.
Krumholz admitted to selling ecstasy, methamphetamine and ketamine on his ship. He could face up to 20 years in jail and fines of $1 million.
Krumholz was arrested in St. Thomas after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents searched his stateroom cabin and found 142 ecstasy pills, nearly 3 grams of methamphetamine, a small quantity of ketamine and about $51,000 in cash. Officials were tipped off to Krumholz after they found drugs on another passenger who got the drugs from him.
Royal Caribbean says it has a zero-tolerance policy on illegal drugs at sea and it cooperated fully with authorities.
