Pablo Escobar’s submarine found? – video

Yesterday, the online editions of many dailies, picked up on the subject of the probable discovery off the coast of Colombia of a submarine that was used by the cartel of the legendary Pablo Escobar, to smuggle cocaine. The wreck of the boat is being sought by former CIA agents Doug Laux and Ben Smith.

During the golden age of the Medellin cartel under Pablo Escobar, cocaine was transported to the USA in bulk by every possible means. In film productions such as “Narcos”, “Barry Seal” and the now legendary “Blow”, small, light aircraft are the dominant means of transport.

As it turns out, however, a large proportion of the drugs were also sent by sea, using submarines! Yes, yes… there was a lot of money and a truly wild imagination in devising new ways to smuggle cocaine from South America to Puerto Rico, from where the drugs were sent to their final destination – the USA.

The video shows the ex-agents diving at the site indicated by the witness. In the end they do not manage to find the wreck, only a metal box. Not discouraged, they consider their exploration a partial success, assuming that the wreck may have moved over the decades and is probably still lying somewhere in the area.

Underwater units for drug smuggling have even earned a specific name for their class – narcosub or drug sub. The first specimens appeared in the early 1980s, and subsequent models, improved and constantly developed, are still in use today.

A vessel intercepted in 2015, was transporting 7.7 tonnes of cocaine! The services fighting drug smuggling, point to the ever improving camouflage of the vessels, which are very difficult to detect, even with highly specialised equipment such as radar, sonar or infrared devices.

The goal of two former CIA agents is to find the legendary and still missing treasure of Pablo Escobra, valued at $50 billion! The search is being carried out as part of a series by Discovery UK
