Approved For Release 2000/08/08 :CIA-RDP96-007898002500040013-7 ~~ DATA SUMMARIES Project 94-280-0 (S/NF/SG/LIMDIS) Following are the perceived highlights SG1A - (S/NF/SG/LIMDIS) Source A: -- There are a small number of submersible vessels in existence located in the Caribbean Sea area and they are ideal for transporting cargo undetected. The vessels have some technical communications capabilities and are run by South Americans operating within this region. They have carried drugs in the past consisting of white packaged cocaine or marijuana and same munitions or fire arms for protection purposes. Since these specific vessels tasked hereto were abandoned and no longer in use, it is reasonable to assume there is nothing of value found on them now. This is not a solo operation but involves a highly organized group consisting of some Latin American speaking individuals. A middleman of particular interest is tall with a sculpted face and long black hair. A large profit for illegal contraband has been obtained by these people who have been suspect of illegal activities in the past. (S/NF/SG/WN/LIMDIS) Source B: -- No information. (S/NF/SG/WN/LIMDIS) Source C: -- This abandoned vessel could have been sighted by an aircraft flying over it. The vessel is of Central/South American origin. The fact that it was abandoned could lead one to believe that it is no longer wanted for its use. In the past history of drug trafficking, sometimes these types of vessels are abandoned once they have been utilized for such activities. These types of vessels are usually old and dirty. It is not perceived that the owners are looking for or wanting this vessel back in their ownership. There is nothing on board this vessel.
