$100K in drugs found on cruise ship docked in Md.

Drug-sniffing dogs found nearly $100,000 worth of cocaine and heroin aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise ship in a federal investigation of an employee smuggling ring.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection says the search on Saturday uncovered 1 1/2 pounds of heroin and nearly a pound of cocaine aboard the ship Enchantment of the Seas. The ship was searched while docked in Baltimore, and the drugs were found in a compartment that's only accessible to employees.

Last month, three employees of the ship were charged with conspiracy to import drugs after authorities say one of them was caught onshore with similar amounts of cocaine and heroin. Law enforcement officials would not say whether the new drug seizure is linked to that case, and no further arrests have been made.
