Federal agents discovered a drug traffic tunnel nearly a half mile long under the Mexican California Border. 22 million dollars worth of cocaine and marijuana has been seized New York federal agents. They have identified this as the longest cross-border tunnel ever discovered,

Federal officials say the tunnel stretches from Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico to Otay Mesa, about 500 yards north of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Freshman Jordan Pescovitz said, “It’s horrible that drug traffickers have stooped so low that they have to build tunnels underground. Hopefully our men in blue can figure this out.”

The tunnel was filled with lights, air conditioning/ventilation, and even a large elevator that led into a closet inside the Tijuana residence, officials said.

The tunnel exit on the U.S. side is a 3-foot-diameter hole that was covered by an industrial dumpster.

“On the surface, few would ever suspect that traffickers were moving multi-ton quantities of cocaine and marijuana worth tens of millions of dollars in such an unassuming way, through this rabbit hole in the ground, in full view of the world around it,” said U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy.

“This case is a strong reminder of the vulnerabilities that exist along the Southwest border,” said Hunter Davis, Director of Air Operations for Customs and Border Protection, Air and Marine Operations.
