Newly Completed Drug Tunnel Shut Down In California

SAN DIEGO (UPI) — California police have shut down an tunnel linking San Diego to Tijuana, Mexico, allegedly used for drug trafficking, officials said.

The tunnel, which was discovered by the San Diego Tunnel Task Force, was newly created, CNN reported.

“It hasn’t been utilized,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Virginia Kice said late Wednesday. “We were able to shutter it before it was utilized to bring drugs into the interior.”

This is not the first drug-running tunnel discovered in the area, U-T San Diego reported.

In November 2010, an 1,800-foot tunnel connecting a warehouse in Tijuana with one in the Otay Mesa industrial area of San Diego was discovered and shut down by U.S. investigators. About 30 tons of marijuana were discovered in that operation, officials said.
