Cocaine Captain Nemo – UPDATED

December 15, 2008

via BoingBoing:

A drug lord in Columbia is thought to have 20 (!) homemade submarines for running coke. Authorities call him “Capatain Nemo”.

From The La Times:

“He had a marvelous criminal vision,” Colombian navy Capt. Luis German Borrero said. “He introduced innovations such as a bow that produced very little wake, a conning tower that rises only a foot above the water and a valve system that enables the crew to scuttle the sub in 10 minutes. He is very ingenious.”

UPDATE: BoingBoing has posted another homemade submarine – this one from Soviet-era Russia.

In Soviet Russia...marine subs you!
