Discovery of 2nd major San Diego-area cross-border drug tunnel leads to 8 arrests, seizure of more than 20 tons of marijuana
SAN DIEGO – Eight suspects are in custody on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border and more than 20 tons of marijuana have been seized following the San Diego Tunnel Task Force’s discovery Thursday of a cross-border passageway even more sophisticated than a similar tunnel uncovered in the area less than three weeks ago.
Unlike previous area tunnels, the nearly half-mile long passageway had two U.S. entrances located in warehouses about 800 feet apart in the Otay Mesa industrial complex in southern San Diego. The tunnel, which reached an estimated depth of 90 feet, emerged in Tijuana, Mexico, inside a stucco residence outfitted with a garage large enough to accommodate deliveries by tractor trailer trucks. Inside, the tunnel’s walls were fortified with wood and cinderblock supports and the passageway was equipped with advanced rail, electrical and ventilation systems. In addition, near one of the tunnel’s entrances, its builders had carved out a 10 by 20 foot underground room where authorities believe smugglers off-loaded marijuana bales from the rail cart before hoisting them to the surface.
