Drug smuggling using a submarine

For some reason the Penguin's submarine in the original Batman movie sprang to mind when i read this. For some time now there have been rumours of drug smugglers off the coast of the U.S.A. using mini-submarines or semi-submersibles to evade detection and capture by the U.S. Coast Guard and other naval units. Now one has been captured.

The submarine nicknamed "Big Foot" by the USCG was able to carry 4 tons of cargo travelling mostly underwater. Its said that other submarines in the cartel's fleet can carry 15 tons of the white stuff.
