A U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Munro crew boarded a semi-submersible vessel suspected of drug-smuggling.

The video, released Thursday shows the dramatic capture of a submarine carrying 17,000 pounds of cocaine. This bust was part of a $569 million drug bust. During this three-month mission the Munro had 14 drug seizures. WATCH:

Donald Trump applauded the action on Twitter Thursday night saying, "Do you believe this kind of bravery? Amazing drug seizure. WATCH!"

Vice President Mike Pence greeted the Coast Guard members in San Diego as they offloaded the seized drugs. Pence stated the bust "will lead to the prosecution of 55 alleged smugglers." He also added, “that is a remarkable record of success.”
