I am hooked to the show 'DEA' on Spike TV. Its amazing how some of the drug dealers handle the transportation of drugs across the border.
Not to forget,the danger the DEA officers face, when they come head-to-head with ruthless criminals with high powered guns.

Had read that they have been using unmanned subs for these purposes too. There are always people who want to get these things past the law!
