Loaded Narco-Sub Intercepted with 17k Lbs of Cocaine
Needless to say a lot of things happen at sea and sad to say, things like this are included among them.
I came across this incredible clip of a narco-sub being intercepted by the US Coast Guard where a crewman from the US Coast Guard Cutter USS Douglas Munro jumps onto the sub in the middle of choppy seas. ( seen below)
So the US Coast Guard was patrolling international waters off the coast of Colombia when it came across whats called a semi-sub. These self propelled semi subs float partially underwater making them hard to find and capture.
These types of interceptions are rare, but this time was different. Apparently while on patrol the Coast Guard just happened to spot the sub.
They seized more than 17,000 pounds of cocaine worth about $232 million.
The 3 minute clip of the event even gives spectators and adrenaline rush. I am impressed/surprised by the technology being used to get this stuff transported.
