Allure of the Seas Passenger Arrested For Dealing Drugs
Steven Krumholz, 51, was arrested over the weekend for allegedly selling drugs from his stateroom onboard Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas.
During a random inspection Wednesday while the ship was in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands a passenger was found with drugs. When asked where the drugs had come from the passenger told authorities that he had ordered the drugs before the trip and had picked them up at Krumholz’s stateroom. A search of the room found $51,020 in cash, a $960 money order, 3 grams of methamphetamine, more than 140 Ecstasy pills and ketamine.
Royal Caribbean’s biggest and newest ship was being chartered by Atlantis Events for what they called the “world’s largest gay cruise.”
In a statement released by Royal Caribbean, the line says they have no tolerance for illegal drugs on their ships. Atlantis Events also added that they fully support Royal Caribbean’s policies and both are cooperating fully with law enforcement.
Krumholz, of West Hollywood, California, was arrested and charged with the intent to resell illegal drugs and turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agents.
The Allure of the Seas finished its itinerary as planned and returned to Port Everglades, in For Lauderdale, FL Friday.
