WASHINGTON – The Drug Enforcement Administration says it has helped seized a submarine capable of transporting tons of coc aine.
DEA officials say the diesel electric-powered submarine was constructed in a remote jungle and captured near a tributary close to the Ecuador-Colombia border. Ecuadorian authorities seized the sub before it could make its maiden voyage.
The sophisticated camouflaged vessel has a conning tower, periscope and air-conditioning system. It measured about nine-feet-high from the deck plates to the ceiling and stretched nearly a 100 feet long. The DEA says it was built for trans-oceanic drug trafficking.

The smugglers never seem to stop thinking of new ways to transport their drugs. The submarine sounds kind of small, 100 feet long, 9 feet high. I wonder what next idea they will come up with?
