Drug tunnel discovered

US authorities have shut a sophisticated drug smuggling tunnel recently dug under the US-Mexican border. The 2.4-mile tunnel linked a warehouse in Tijuana to another in San Diego. The tunnel was equipped with lights, ventilation and an electric rail system. Three people were arrested, and more than eight tones of marijuana and 147kg of cocaine were seized in connection with the “super tunnel.” The tunnel was discovered by the San Diego Tunnel Task Force. The unit had reportedly put the warehouse on the US side under surveillance after hearing about the purchase of drills and other construction equipment in August and September. (Source)
