Three crew members working on a Princess Cruises ship were arrested for drug possession at the Port of Vancouver last week.

Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) told Daily Hive that staff conducted a routine search on the Island Princess on Wednesday, May 10. The ship was scheduled to leave for Alaska.

“As a result of the search, three individuals were arrested and detained under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, and were presented to the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) of Canada for a detention review,” said Kristine Wu, communications officer for CBSA.

Princess Cruises confirmed with Daily Hive that three of their employees were involved in the incident.

“The company has a zero tolerance for the possession or use of narcotics,” said Brea Burkholz of Princess Cruises. “Therefore, the crew members’ employment contracts have been terminated.”
