The Colombian Navy, together with the Air Force and the National Police, located 114 kilograms of cocaine submerged and secured to the seabed.
After a several month-long research and surveillance operation by the National Police, the Navy divers were sent to find the drugs. A total of six packages were found in the general area of Quitasueño, more than 100 miles from the island of San Andres.
This was the first time a drug shipment was found hidden in this way, anchored seven meters underwater.
Authorities believe that the narcotics were to be transported aboard a speedboat to Central America, and later to America. The value of the packages is estimated at USD 3 million.
