COCAINE SUB HUNTERS: SERIES
Executive Producers: Steve Hoggard, Daphna Rubin, David Hill
Follow DEA agents on their quest to track down and bust narco-submarines in one of the most violent places in Colombia: the Pacific coastal region of Tumaco.
Our investigation takes us onto the streets and into the mangrove swamps with joint team of DEA Special Agents and Colombian commandos.
We’ll meet a drug sub informant who ventures out to mark a sub site for capture – and subsequently goes missing. And travel to a clandestine meeting with one of the very first drug sub inventors; an engineer hired by Pablo Escobar now in hiding, he shares his original “test” footage of the very first cocaine submarine prototype ever built.
Later, we venture out with a DEA interdiction team as they seize several ‘semi-subs’ for clues to their makers.
And by program’s end, our cameras are there when DEA and Colombian Marines bag the biggest prey of all – the first fully submersible cocaine submarine ever seized in Colombia!
