SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - Tipped off by three plastic pipes mysteriously skimming the ocean’s surface, authorities seized a homemade submarine packed with 3 tons of cocaine off Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.

Four men traveled inside the 50-foot wood and fiberglass craft, breathing through the pipes. The craft sailed along at about 7 mph, just six feet beneath the surface, Security Minister Fernando Berrocal said Sunday.
Wow! I'd like to see that sub. A home made sub that is 50 feet long? I need a visual here.
50 tons of cocaine?

Good thing they caught these guys, they'd have hit New York City by nightfall.
wow, that should inflate the price of cocaine substantially.....
I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for the Cartel's brainstorming session for this one!
Necessity? No. These are the Mothers of Invention:

After the Soviet Union collapsed I recall some of the cartels were in the market to buy old soviet subs to ship their cocaine, I guess it didn't work out for them.
