Third coast guard employee arrested

Coast GuardWILLEMSTAD - A third coast guard employee has been arrested in connection with the drug investigation around the boat named Prenda. This boat capsized last December with a coast guard employee on board. Another occupant of the boat is still missing.

The presence of a coast guard employee on that boat was suspicious since a code yellow was issued that day. Three coast guard officers were suspended following that incident. Two of them were arrested. The third, a 28-year-old man, could not be arrested because he was abroad. When he arrived at Hato last Monday, he was still arrested.

There were house raids held in coast guard employees' houses. Various articles were confiscated.
