A yacht owner is facing gun and drug charges on Nantucket. 

The harbormaster, Coast Guard and Nantucket Fire Department were called for a passenger aboard the "Jess Conn" needing medical assistance on Tuesday morning. 

Police followed up with an investigation and arrested Scott Burke of Key Largo, Florida, on two counts of possessing a firearm without a license. 

Authorities also allegedly discovered a drug stash that included cocaine. 

Burke is due for an arraignment in Nantucket District Court next week.
