The crew of the Munro, a 127-meter U.S. Coast Guard Pacific patrol vessel, captured a narcos’ submarine that was carrying more than 17,690 kilograms of cocaine and 432 kilograms of marijuana with a total estimated value of $569 million, in international waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean. Aboard Long Range Interceptors, high-speed patrol boats, U.S. Coast Guard men first approached the submarine.

After repeatedly intimidating the submarine to stop, Coast Guard men jumped onto the sailing submarine and captured the narcos on board and the drug shipment. Watch the video below!
