Last week, Scott Anthony Burke, 69, was arrested aboard his yacht after police received a call that a woman felt unsafe on board. Upon police arrival, drugs, illegal firearms, and prostitutes were found aboard.
“The subsequent search of the yacht allegedly uncovered about 43 grams of cocaine, 14 grams of ketamine, a .380 pistol, three 30-round 9 millimeter magazines, a 12-round magazine in a 9-millimeter pistol, according to the police report.”
Once all parties were removed from the boat, more revelations came to light from the wild boat afternoon in the sleepy harbor town.
After police obtained a warrant and searched the boat, the Nantucket Current reported on the additional findings on the ship. And buckle up folks… this already wild story becomes wilder.
The woman who was removed from the boat, who claimed she felt unsafe, noted in police documents that:
“They were doing drugs all weekend long, and people on the boat had been making pornographic films.”
Reports also identify that the drugs onboard the boat included ketamine, Adderall, ecstasy and cocaine. The man who identified these additional findings was a man who was aboard the vessel.
The US Coast Guard responded to an unusual distress call on #NantucketIsland, where 69-year-old Scott Anthony Burke's 82-foot yacht, the Jess Conn, was reported to be on fire. Authorities had discovered drugs, guns, and an overdose onboard Burke's #yacht leading to his arrest. pic.twitter.com/Ik5p9kQYzA
