Ishermon Tafari Cruise Ship Cocaine Arrest
June 28, 2014 Ishermon Tafari Arrested on Carnival Cruise Line, Carnival Liberty for Cocaine.
Ishermon Tafari, 31, was sailing on Carnival Cruise Lines' Carnival Liberty cruise ship, which he embarked at Port Canaveral, Florida, when he was arrested upon returning Saturday June 28, 2014 with 11 pounds of cocaine.
Tafari was cruising by himself, a fact which law enforcement say is an indication something is wrong for a Caribbean cruise.
Tafari's luggage in his cabin was searched with law enforcement finding 11 pounds of cocaine hidden in a girdle. Tafari is being held without bail.
Carnival Liberty called at Turks and Caicos, Aruba and Curacao before returning to Port Canaveral.
