The U.S. Coast Guard intercepted a homemade submarine and seized a cocaine haul worth at least $181 million off the coast of Mexico, officials said.

The bust last month is the biggest of its kind in Coast Guard history.

The Coast Guard Cutter Stratton intercepted the 40-foot "self-propelled semi-submersible" in the Pacific Ocean 200 miles south of Mexico on July 18 and arrested four alleged smugglers, officials said. The Guard seized 275 bales of cocaine.

Eight tons of Columbian nose caulk taken off the street in a single bust? That's a very impressive job by the Coast Guard.  :thumbsup:

Except for the eighty tons that probably got through................
