Colombian drug traffickers have been caught using a small submarine to smuggle 5.8 tons of coc aine to the United States.
Mexican navy Vice Admiral Jose Maria Ortegon said the 30-foot green submarine, which was captured on Wednesday, was equipped with global positioning system and a compass, and its crew had planned to drop off its shipment on Mexican shores.
Authorities arrested four Colombian crew members who claim to be fishermen forced by drug cartels to move the cargo. They say they left the Colombian port of Buenaventura about a week ago.
Similar makeshift submarines carrying drugs have been discovered off Colombia and Central America, but the navy says the seizure is a first for Mexico.
