120 Grams of Cocaine Seized From Denzel Washington’s Equalizer 3 Crew Members


Share post:

Italian paramilitary police said they seized 120 grams of cocaine during a raid on Tuesday afternoon at a hotel on the Amalfi Coast, where some crew members of Denzel Washington and Dakota Fanning’s Equalizer 3 were lodged.

Law enforcement officials say the drug arrest was in response to the sudden death of the head of the catering department in the making of the film, a 55-year-old man who reportedly passed out leaving a bar and died of a heart attack.


Police said they found several bags of cocaine in the man’s pockets, leading to suspicions that there were other drugs in the “Equalizer” filming area.

Two catering workers from Italy have been placed under house arrest on suspicion of drug trafficking after police said they seized cocaine in their hotel room in a raid on Tuesday.

The police reportedly detained them outside the filming location.

Interestingly, another contractor on set was allegedly in possession of a small amount of cocaine for personal use.

Italian police say they also searched for drugs at a local port that serves as a key location for the Antoine Fuqua film but the scan found no cocaine.

A representative for Denzel said there would be no production delays, as work would go on as usual.
