Barcadera Arma (1) (Medium)

Sunday morning at the Barcadera wharf police and other authorities were notified when a trawler moored at the dock, but did not comply with local clearance rules, which are determined by immigration and customs laws.

The crew on Shirley Shrimpin contacted authorities claiming the boat was a local fishing boat, which is not the case; they came to shore flying a non-local flag in the early morning hours of Sunday. There were a few Arubans on board, but the boat was coming in from abroad.

 

When denied access to the boat, security insisted the local rules should be followed and notified authorities. Police, Coastguard and Customs, among others lent assistance. On board of the boat authorities found a firearm and bullets.

 

Shirley Shrimpin had apparently left the U.S.A. and came to Aruba via Cuba and the Dominican Republic.
