Another Submarine Threat

Colombian police find drugs sub
Colombia's Department of Administrative Security says the submarine would have been used to evade radar and naval patrol ships, taking drugs out to sea where they could be transferred to high-speed motorboats for the journey to Central America and on to the United States.

"The ingenuity of drug traffickers is amazing. They will seek any way to avoid the coast guard," Eduardo Fernandez, head of Colombia's secret police in Valle del Cauca state, told the Associated Press.
(As an aside, how "secret" is a "secret police" in which the head gives statements to the press?)

I think the U.S. Navy should be lining up for some anti-submarine warfare practice...
