Mexico US Drug Tunnel
December 2, 2011 by staff
Mexico US Drug Tunnel, Federal officials on Tuesday arrested six people and seized more than 32 tons of marijuana with a street value of $65 million following a six-month investigation into an elaborate U.S.-Mexico border drug tunnel equipped with an elevator and electric rail cars.
The different agencies with the San Diego Tunnel Task Force made the announcement of the smuggling tunnel on Wednesday. Officials with the agencies said the tunnel is the most elaborate they have uncovered along the U.S.-Mexico border in recent years.
Officials said the passageway is also the seventh large-scale drug smuggling tunnel found in the San Diego area since 2006.
It seems law enforcement officials are diligently making a tough crack down on drug smugglers as Tuesday’s tunnel is the second major cross-border smuggling passageway officials have detected in the San Diego area within the last two weeks.
According to a statement issued by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, the Tunnel Task Force discovered another tunnel on Nov. 15 that opened inside a warehouse near the Otay Mesa border crossing. Law enforcement officials seized more than 14 tons of marijuana on that discovery, ICE said.
