Colombian soldiers stand guard next to  homemade mortars seized from the FARC

Colombian soldiers guard a homemade submersible in a rural area of Timbiqui, Colombia, on Feb. 14, 2011.

A submersible has the capacity to transport eight tons of cocaine, and it can sail from Colombia to Mexico.

The Colombian Army said they found the sub on the southwestern coast of the Colombian Pacific Ocean.

Officials were surprised at the advanced technology used to make the 100 ft. long vessel, which allows for complete submersion, making it virtually undetectable.
