Another drug sub busted

A sinking self-propelled, semi-submersible vessel was interdicted March 30 in the Western Caribbean Sea by the crews of Coast Guard cutter Decisive, Coast Guard cutter Pea Island, Joint Interagency Task Force South and the Honduran navy.

The vessel sank during the interdiction in thousands of feet of water, marking the fifth interdiction of a vessel in the Caribbean.

Four suspected smugglers were detained.
