WATCH: Coast Guard leaps onto submarine carrying half a billion dollars worth of cocaine


(KETK) – Law enforcement officials making drug busts are nothing new. However, it raises your eyebrows when one is made in the middle of the sea.

The U.S. Coast Guard released dramatic video on Thursday of them seizing 36,000 pounds of cocaine and marijuana, valued at more than $569 million.

The seizure was aboard a submarine used by drug cartels. Officials say the drugs were mostly from Central and South America.
