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?

it would be interesting to see what the CIA uses as their tools of smuggling.
the game of cat and mouse gets more high-tech each year.
interesting to see what's next.

I watched a show on a history channel the other day. During the 1920's some guy who had a few bucks to spend bought a submarine. And he used it to smuggle rum, I think it was, into the U.S. Ah, history repeats itself.

I wonder how many submarines vehicles have yet to be discovered.

uhh, considering that it's not a military sub, this is amazingly large.
