Cocaine Captain Nemo – UPDATED
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.
