Drug Tunnel Between Tijuana and San Diego
Do you ever wonder where illegal street drugs come from? Do you ever use drugs and find yourself wondering how they got to you? What kinds of things had to be done to smuggle those drugs into your hands? Well, drug cartels and drug traffickers are resorting to increasingly elaborate plans to get drugs across the border between California and Mexico, police sources say. In one remarkable example, drug authorities shut down a "super tunnel" that linked a warehouse in Tijuana with a warehouse in San Diego, California.
The tunnel was nearly as long as six football fields, winding its way underground beneath the border of the United States and Mexico. It had electric lighting, ventilation, and an electric rail system to ferry the drugs back and forth. 4 feet tall and 3 feet wide, the tunnel was buried 35 feet underground. U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy had a message for the Sinoloa cartel, who built the tunnel: “If you continue to build and attempt to use these tunnels, we are determined to make this a big waste of your dirty money. Not only will we take your drugs and shut down your tunnels before you even get an opportunity to use them, but we’re now in a position where we’re going after your management.”
