Authorities seize sub built for transporting tons of cocaine

A fully functional submarine built for the primary purpose of transporting massive amounts of cocaine has been seized by Ecuadorian authorities with the help of U.S. drug enforcement agents.

A drug-trafficking organization built the sea-worthy vessel that is now being held near the border of Ecuador and Colombia, and one individual has been taken into custody, authorities said. The investigation into the group and the submarine, which was seized Friday, is ongoing.
