‘Out In The Open’: Half-Mile Long Drug Tunnel Connects US To Mexico

Recommended Posts

As Americans argued over the ethics and logistics of building a wall between the US and Mexico, drug traffickers were busy digging. A half-mile long tunnel connecting Mexico and San Diego was found to contain more than a ton of cocaine.

An 800-yard long tunnel linking Tijuana to Southern California was found to have been equipped with a rail system, ventilation, lights, and a large elevator, the Las Vegas Sun reported. The US attorney’s office said that six people were arrested in San Diego on Friday in connection with drug related crimes, as well as the construction of the tunnel.

It is unclear what led to the arrests, but the purpose of the tunnel seems pretty clear, as KABC reported that 2,242 pounds of cocaine and more than 14,000 pounds of marijuana were found inside. The US attorney’s office claims it is the 13th large-scale operational drug smuggling tunnel to appear in California since 2006, and the third discovery of its kind in Southern California in recent weeks, KNSDreported.

They've found 75 cross border tunnels in the past 5 years. Leave the border open so they don't have to dig so hard to get here.
