Up periscope

The Daily Telegraph reports today how a semi-submersible craft, loaded with an estimated five metric tons of cocaine (worth more than £175m) was intercepted by US Customs and Border Patrol agents off the Pacific coast of Guatemala (themselves somewhat lejos from their own borders). The four-man crew scuttled their 'sub' as soon as they saw the gringos approaching, sending four metric tons of cocaine to the bottom, but some 11 bales were later picked out of the water.
