The US captures a 'cocaine sub' in the Pacific Ocean

from OCCRP

A Coast Guard crew captured a 40-foot (12-meter) long submarine recently that was carrying nearly 5.5 tons of cocaine worth US$ 164 million. A patrol plane first spotted the submarine and informed the Coast Guard crew which then intercepted the submarine in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. With the help of Colombia's NAVI, authorities apprehended four suspected drug smugglers and seized the cocaine. "The joint boarding successfully stopped a drug smuggling vessel and also strengthened international relations and communications between the two partner nations," the Coast Guard said in a statement. more
