US Coast Guard officer jumps onto moving submarine suspected of carrying drugs

Five suspected drug smugglers were found, Chief Petty Officer John Masson with the U.S. Coast Guard told Fox News on Thursday. The drugs were worth about $232 million.

In a press briefing Thursday, Special Agent James Spero of U.S. Homeland Security Investigations announced that 55 suspected smugglers had been detained along with the drugs that were seized.

The drugs are estimated to be work $569 million combined.

The video was filmed on June 18 but was only released today.

Dramatic video has captured members of the U.S. Coast Guard jumping onto a submarine suspected of drug smuggling in order to intercept the vessel. He tweeted extensively about the "courageous service" of the Coast Guard helping to save lives. They are hard to detect, and many elude drug enforcement efforts.

Such vessels are built to evade detection while holding large amounts of illegal imports, the Coast Guard said in a description accompanying the video.

"Stop your boat!" a Coast Guard member's voice can be heard repeatedly shouting in Spanish.

Cameras attached to the helmets of the guardsmen were able to record footage of the narco-sub being spotted and attacked by the USA coast guards.

The crew ship was on its maiden voyage to worldwide waters off the coast of Mexico and Central America.

Most of the time they manage to fly under the radar - or they did, until June 18, reports The Washington Post.

The crew of U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro were welcomed back by Vice President Mike Pence, which the Coast Guard live streamed on Facebook.

He added the Pacific region monitored by the Coast Guard is roughly the size of continental US, saying their mission was a lot like two police cars patrolling the entire country.
