Guess this adds a new meaning....

To the ship hasn't come in

MEXICO CITY - A submarine-like vessel filled with hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cocaine was seized off the Guatemalan coast, U.S. officials said.

Four suspected smugglers were operating the self-propelled, semi-submersible vessel when it was located and seized on Sunday evening by officials from the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, U.S. Navy and the U.S. Coast Guard, the Border Patrol said in a news release Wednesday.
When the suspects realized they had been spotted by drug-surveillance aircraft patrolling the eastern Pacific, they scuttled the vessel but were unable to escape.
Coast Guard officials, guided by the reconnaissance plane, intercepted the vessel and detained the reputed smugglers, who were transporting approximately 5.5 tons of cocaine worth $352 million, the Border Patrol said.
The interception occurred off the coast of Central America about 300 miles southwest of the Mexico-Guatemala border, the U.S. Coast Guard said in a separate statement.
Several drug-carrying submarines operated by Colombian drug cartels have been discovered in recent years.

They didn't mentioned if they did or not. They did try to scuddle it.

Scuttled ... Had to look that one up!
1. Nautical.
a. a small hatch or port in the deck, side, or bottom of a vessel.
b. a cover for this.
2. a small hatchlike opening in a roof or ceiling.
–verb (used with object)
3. to sink (a vessel) deliberately by opening seacocks or making openings in the bottom.
4. to abandon, withdraw from, or cause to be abandoned or destroyed (as plans, hopes, rumors, etc.).

Pretty vague
