Two caterers on ‘The Equalizer 3’ set arrested in cocaine bust

Italian paramilitary police arrested two caterers working on Denzel Washington’s “The Equalizer 3” action flick after seizing 120 grams of cocaine during a raid on their hotel rooms. 

The drug bust took place Tuesday afternoon at a hotel near the town of Maiori on the Amalfi coast. 

Italian police officers placed two Roman catering workers over the age of 30 under house arrest on suspicion of drug dealing after allegedly seizing the cocaine from their rooms. 

Several packets of cocaine were subsequently discovered in his pockets, leading police to suspect that there might be more drugs on the set of “The Equalizer 3” production. 

A third caterer was allegedly found to be in possession of a small amount of cocaine “for personal use” and had his driver’s license revoked 

Police also swept the area of the local port, which has been the main staging area for the film production. 

The movie is being produced by Sony Pictures in partnership with Italy’s Eagle Pictures, with a third party, Garbo Produzioni, handling logistics on location. 

Directed by Antoine Fuqua, “The Equalizer 3” is starring Washington and Dakota Fanning. 

Washington, 67, is reprising his role as retired US Marine Robert McCall.
