U.S. Customs nab submarine with millions worth of cocaine
The Associated Press
MEXICO CITY — U.S. officials say they seized a submarine-like vessel packed with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cocaine off the Guatemalan coast.
Four suspected smugglers were operating the self-propelled, semi-submersible vessel when drug-surveillance aircraft patrolling the Pacific spotted it Sunday night.
The Border Patrol says when the suspects realized they had been noticed, they tried to sink the ship, crammed with about five and a half tons of cocaine. The Coast Guard got to them first.
Several drug-smuggling subs operated by Colombian drug cartels have been discovered in recent years.

I heard about this in the breaking news the night that it was discovered.
I understood that they threw most of it in the water before the coast guard got to it.
i could have misunderstood it, i remember them saying like millions of coke was destroyed, but they recovered a buch of bails as well, still in the vessel.
I would suggest that they keep the people they arrested in prison for life sentences, because they will probably disappear like hoffa did.
All in all, awesome job!YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.
