That's the price for being stupid....jail time and thousands lost on the cruise.  Hope those pills were worth it.

for the record the paper today updated the story and says they considered giving narcan to the dog but did not - unknown how the dog would react - so they went to an emergency animal hospital where the dog was successfully treated.

 

btw - similar thing happened for this same event last year and this is not an action initiated by the port or local police .....  The cruise line requested and paid for overtime for the increased law enforcement presence in an effort to avoid issues they expected!!

REALLY stupid people.  It means they were carried powdered drugs in open containers.

If nothing else, you want a tight sealed container to not SPILL them.

dog IS back on duty and conducted interviews for the media according to the local paper .....

 

https://www.floridatoday.com/story/news/crime/2019/01/14/brevard-k-9-officer-fully-recovered-after-amphetamine-exposure/2572344002/

 

The Brevard County Sheriff's Office K9 who was exposed to drugs during a detail last week has since fully recovered, ....

 

Immediately after sniffing the exterior of one of the bags and alerting deputies to possible drugs inside, Jake collapsed and began seizing. Deputy Stewart began administering CPR and called for help. ...

 

 

Initial reports indicated Jake may have ingested an opiate and was treated at the scene with Narcan, a drug carried by law enforcement and medical first responders that counteracts the effects of opioids. 

Deputies at the scene were ready to treat Jake with Narcan but ultimately they did not. 

Jake was treated at the Courtenay Animal Hospital, where veterinarian Dr. Elizabeth Chosa immediately realized Jake was showing signs of amphetamine toxicity. ...

 

... medications were administered for several hours to stabilize Jake's temperature and heart rate.

Just wow!

That said we had a drug sniffing dog onboard the Getaway cruise a couple of weeks ago, not just at the ports.

Very happy to see it, very sad that NCL believed it was needed.

Sorry for the totally OT post but that script text is nearly impossible to read on a device. You might want to consider changing it.

Thank you for adding this information,  I am heartened  to learn the dog was taken for proper  vet care and treatment was successful.

Wonder if they "bought" their mug shots in place of the embark photo?

Nope. They took advantage of the commentary photos offered by the Brevard County Sheriffs office.

stupidity is simply amazing, and entertaining.  Love the Brevard Times also includes the mug shots.  Those people were all older than I expected when I read the article....

True,  stupidity can't be fixed....ignorance can be educated, but stupidity.....eh. Thats just the universe providing entertainment for the rest of us.  

 

And how many of us are very glad that we were young and um , ignorant,  before there were smart phones and youtube?

You mean back when you had to see people to communicate with them?  And they saw you - so you had to be just a bit careful about what you said?

Is it sad that NCL believed it was needed - or that NCL had reason to believe it was needed?

 

 Perhaps the saddest would be there being a need without that need being believed.
