I'm confused so the coke was fake and the whole thing was setup by the agents?

Man that is a nice boat, wonder who will get it at auction

Is it just me or does the overuse of "the complain said" bother anyone else?

Hey, it's a crime to lie to federal agents. He wanted to avoid trouble.
 
2013-10-09 02:54:09 PM
Yeah, the reason you want to tell the agents what's really in the bag is because it's a 50/50 that it's just another shake down. No sense insulting their otherwise lack of intelligence. No sense wasting your own time. Either you part out a few dozen bricks to each "agent" and move along, or they seize everything, laugh their butts off as they part out whatever they want for themselves.

It may be probable since runners like to work in easy to grok numbers like... oh I don't know... 300 kilos instead of that 280 kilos being booked as evidence. I have to assume the agents took 10 kilos each as personal incentive awards.

FTA: Steven Davis was arrested after Costenbader agreed to meet with Davis and delivered fake cocaine to him, the complaint said.

"Fake cocaine".  So was the guy unloading fake cocaine, or was he later involved in a sting to get some guy he was delivering it to?  It feels like this article is missing a paragraph or two.

I mean, unlawfulness aside, it seems like it would be a rather fun trip to be driving a luxury yacht from the sunny Bahamas to West Palm, with copious amounts of coke.
 
2013-10-09 03:09:24 PM
Sorry, I meant to say, "Not cocaine."

I actually found the guy's honesty quite refreshing.  The world could use more of that.

To hell with the law, that ship would be dope.


Michelle Daniel, who was also inside the yacht, was arrested, the complaint said.


Furthermore; the implication.

How badly did the captain need money?  Captains get a shiatload to move a boat.  I cannot imagine how much more that would be if you incorporate drug delivery into it.

They make it sound like they just happened to notice this guy while they were on lunch break or something.

Clearly the person who got busted is a complete idiot for thinking he could just make a transport like that in broad daylight and no one would take notice.  He also an idiot for noticing he was being watched.

justanotherfarkinfarker: /Michelle Daniel I'm guessing looks great in a bikini on a multimillion dollar boat


My guess would be that she was purchased along with the yacht, much like one would select the trim on any other luxury.

durbnpoisn: He also an idiot for noticing he was being watched.


He was likely setup by the feds or the the drug gang to take the heat off the other 1000 bricks that made it in that day.

Auction? A-HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA.

I worked as a yacht captain on the Treasure Coast for ten years and have returned from the Bahamas dozens of times. Never have I received a visit from customs. Of course, I've always called to report in immediately after tying up to the dock.

The way the process works for yachts is, when you arrive at your dock you dial a 1-800 number for customs. They'll ask you for a crew and passenger list and the number from your customs decal (which you apply for by mail once a year). In every case I've been involved in, they have said, "OK, here's your clearance number. You and the passengers have 24 hours to report to immigration and check in. In West Palm, that's at the cruise ship terminal. There is always a chance they'll tell you to stay on board because they're sending officers down for an inspection, but I've only ever had that happen in Key West and they just came by and confiscated my Mexican fruit (Mexican fruit is not a metaphor).

I've never heard of customs patrolling Palm Harbor Marina, unless they're looking for something or someone specific. It seems like they may have had their eye on this guy.

I was really hoping for a 'Mentos' ending on this one.

Well now you don't have to wonder anymore... Rich people can just move their coke around without worrying about customs! Sweet deal.

That's always been sort of a running joke...
"Ok, they're coming down for inspection. Throw the coke in the golf cart and let the Haitians out of the engine room!"

So thinking it is a parallel investigation?  Customs got a tip from the NSA so they just happened to be there to happen to notice this suspicious behavior?
