Inside Cocaine Wars: Drug Speedboats

The crew captures DEA Agents working to assemble and measure the contraband of the big DR bust, which they speculate is 43 million dollars in street value.
Meet a team of DEA agents patrolling the Dominican Republic, where drug traffickers can send their product to cities all over the Eastern Seaboard. In a risky chase, the team races after a cocaine speedboat, known as a “go-fast,” that carries two tons of pure Colombian cocaine worth more than $100 million dollars. With speeds exceeding 100 mph, the cops get too close and the go-fast crew jumps overboard. Will the team be able to catch the elusive prey or has it all been for nothing?
