Inside Cocaine Wars: Drug Speedboats

Published
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?
