Coast Guard busts alleged drug sub at sea: video

The U.S. Coast Guard says crew members of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro on June 18, boarded a self-propelled semi-submersible they suspected was carrying drugs.

Video released by the Coast Guard shows one crewman pounding on the hatch of the boat until a man inside throws it open, apparently giving himself up.

The Coast Guard says both vessels were operating in international waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean.

It says more than 39,000 pounds of cocaine and 933 pounds of marijuana worth a combined estimated $569 million have been seized in 14 separate suspected drug smuggling interdictions of the coast of Mexico between May and July, 2019.
