Colombian Coast Guards intercepted a semi-submersible in the Pacific Ocean, with 1,259 kilos of cocaine on board, informed the National Navy on September 19, and emphasized that the vehicle had a system that enabled operation without a crew.
Out of 79 boats of this kind that were seized since 1993 – when the first one was intercepted – this was the only one that had such type of technology.
The semi-submersible was located on September 18 off the coast of the department (province) of Nariño, added the National Navy communiqué, which also specified that “it seems” that the drugs belonged to the criminal gang “Los Rastrojos”, with connections with drug trafficking organizations.
Unfortunately we will only end the drug trade when we manage to stop people using drugs, that means to put an end to people who consume drugs . And also with the ones who produce them. Thatâ€™s the good thing about technology because through these smart devices it has also been possible to capture drug traffickers... Thatâ€™s the good thing about technology because through these smart devices it has also been possible to capture drug traffickers... and so they do not believe that they are the rulers of the world and that they have everything at their feet because they have money...
