SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - Authorities have captured a homemade submarine carrying 3 tons of cocaine off Costa Rica's Pacific coast.
The 49-foot craft was found Friday, 330 miles off the coast near the national park of Isla del Coco, Security Minister Fernando Berrocal said. Four people were arrested.
He said it was the first time such a vessel was seized near the coast.
The U.S. Coast Guard, FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration and Colombian officials aided Costa Rican authorities in the operation, Berrocal said in the statement released Sunday.
Two Colombians, a Guatemalan and a Sri Lankan were arrested and taken to the U.S., where they will confront drug trafficking charges, while the submarine was taken to a Costa Rican Coast Guard station, he said.
So far this year, Costa Rican authorities have seized 18 tons of cocaine


This is a scary thought. How does something like this effect the War on Terror and the War dealing with our borders?
