On Tuesday, law enforcement officials raided a 70-foot yacht named the Jess Conn, which was anchored in Nantucket. The raid was prompted by a tip received by local police regarding a female individual on board who appeared to be under the influence of narcotics and possibly overdosed. The harbormaster and Nantucket Fire Department EMTs successfully removed her from the boat and transported her to a local hospital for treatment.

During a subsequent search of the yacht, authorities discovered 43.4 grams of cocaine, 14.1 grams of ketamine, and two Smith & Wesson pistols. The owner of the yacht, Scott Anthony Burke, a retired doctor from Key West, Florida, was arrested.

According to the police report, Burke has been charged with one count of Trafficking in Class B substances, one count of Possession to Distribute Class A substances, one count of Possession of a Firearm without a License, one count of Possession of Ammunition without a License, and four counts of Possession of a Large Capacity Feeding Device.

The condition of the woman taken to the hospital remains unknown at this time.
