SAN DIEGO, CA – U.S. authorities discovered a drug trafficking super-tunnel stretching from San Diego all the way down to Tijuana! That’s the length of six football fields.
The tunnel is 35 feet deep, 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide. They managed to get lighting, ventilation and a rail system in there, too.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents found 325 pounds of cocaine and 8 tons of marijuana inside the tunnel, with a street value totaling $12 million.
Authorities are eyeing the Sinaloa Cartel, one of the most powerful drug-trafficking gangs in the U.S. and its leader, Joaquin “el Chapo” Guzman.
Three suspects have been captured, but no major players.
