The U.S. Coast Guard captured a 40-foot-long submarine carrying 12,000 pounds of cocaine worth more than $165 million in the Pacific Ocean as it made its way to the United States earlier this month, authorities said Tuesday.

Crew members of the Coast Guard cutter Valiant launched two smaller boats that boarded the drug-carrying vessel and captured four suspected smugglers in the eastern Pacific on Sept. 5, officials said.

The capture came with the "assistance of Colombian Naval assets that arrived on scene shortly after," according to the Coast Guard statement. A Coast Guard spokesman declined to reveal any more specific details about where the operation took place.

The CG or Navy could have run some "depth charge testing". NO trial or processing needed. Could have saved a LOT of money. The dopers would never have known what happened to their shipment old fogey smiley

While I totally appreciate the sentiment, there's a chance that 12,000 pounds of cocaine being indiscriminately dispersed into the ocean, might put a little too much "wild" into the ocean's wildlife, and that might not be a good thing. Now if there were a way to achieve essentially the same result without endangering wildlife....

Calling this thing a "Submarine" is a bit of a stretch.

That is essentially what the President of the Philippines has been doing for the past few years. So far he has a body count somewhere north of 15,000 and climbing.

Perhaps you'd like to see that emulated here, maybe take the Sackler family out behind the barn and shoot them?

It says 500kg were recovered and several thousand kg were left in the boat for safety reasons. They then sank the boat.

The term "for safety reasons" seems a bit nebulous. I'm guessing the cocaine was used as ballast and removing more might have caused a severe list or at least major instability in open water for the sub. I've got to wonder how watertight the individual packages were and how long it'll take the seawater to dissolve the cocaine inside.

That's similar to a subplot (npi) of a Tom Clancy book. He had F-16s buzzing narco planes flying over water below radar. The transports would dive to avoid a head-on collision and splash.

No!

A smart bomb tracking an IR designator would be my choice.

Low yield, of course.
