Semi-submersibles, ultralight planes, rigged cars, underground tunnels, and catapults; these are just some of the devious methods used by drug smugglers to get their products across our borders. It is this kind of diabolically inventive thinking that the special agents of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) must contend with every day.
In the premiere episode of Extreme Smuggling, airing tonight on the Discovery Channel, former smugglers, law enforcement and military professionals will give first-hand accounts of their experiences in the ongoing war against the drug trade. Future episodes will explore the extremes to which criminals will go in their efforts to smuggle everything from narcotics to exotic animals, and the people whose job it is to stop them. Tune in every Monday at 8/7c through February 4th for new episodes of Extreme Smuggling.
Episodes will be repeated throughout the week. Check your local listings for times.
