(Another Drug Tunnel discovered)…It was discovered before it could be used.
The Mexican Military made the discovery near the Airport in Tijuana. Mexican officials say the tunnel was still under construction. They arrested nine people still digging in the tunnel. They say it was about 500 feet long. US Customs and Border Protection officials say they do not think the tunnel had crossed under the International Border yet. A truck believed to be used to haul the dirt away from the tunnel was also seized. Since 2006 more than 80 cross border smuggling tunnels have been found, mostly in California and Arizona.
