Tag Archive: Tunnel


We’ve seen some pretty crude tunnels created to transport drugs from Mexico into Arizona or California, but now law enforcement says that they’ve found one of the most sophisticated and extraordinary tunnels they’ve ever seen.

DRUG TESTING: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FOR YOUR FAMILY.

They say this isn’t just the work of diggers, this has the blueprints of engineer work.

The shafts descend 57 feet and are tall enough to allow a 6 foot man to walk through.

You can read about the discovery in the Los Angeles Times by clicking HERE.

Every one of these tunnels discovered cuts off another artery of drug smuggling. But you can bet as one is uncovered and filled, another several are being built.

Agents don’t know how much drugs were moved through this tunnel but the discovery was made in a recent bust where $39 million dollars of methamphetamine was confiscated.

These cartels aren’t just moving marijuana into America. They are sending in cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine.

We know we will never cut off the supply of drugs reaching our neighborhoods, which is why it is important that parents talk to their teens about the dangers of drugs.

The L.A. Times is reporting that the border patrol has found another one of those underground tunnels from Mexico into San Diego.

The tunnel appeared to be complex, spanning 1800 feet, and containing both a ventilation and rail system.   They also seized 20-million tons of marijuana in a connecting warehouse.  The bust was made in Otay Mesa.

There seems to be some Irony that the border patrol would make an enormous bust, hours after Prop 19 was defeated.   Essentially, the marijuana would have been legal had the measure passed.   Of course, no supply of that magnitude would ever be considered legal.   That wouldn’t be the personal stash for the community of Otay Mesa alone.
