September 2001 Report On Aruba Cruise Ship Drug
In September 2000, USCS officers arrested two individuals with 2.7 kilograms of heroin aboard a Carnival Cruise Line ship. Information obtained as a result of the arrest revealed a major trafficking organization. As the operation continued a number of arrests were made of individuals working aboard Carnival Cruise Lines. These couriers were smuggling heroin and cocaine in hollowed-out areas in the soles of their shoes. Based on these arrests and other investigative leads, Aruba Politie Organized Crime Unit executed the Aruba takedown of Operation Creole on June 29, 2001. The police arrested fifteen people.

The combined efforts of law enforcement during Operation Creole resulted in 34 arrests and the seizure of 29.7 kilograms of heroin, 44 kilograms of cocaine, 1 handgun, and $688,077 in U.S. Currency.
