Drug tunnel believed to have been discovered in Tijuana extending into United States | WGN Radio 720

Suspected Drug Tunnel Found in Tijuana Extending into U.S.墓

The discovery of a suspected drug tunnel in Tijuana stretching into the United States has sparked a major investigation by Mexican authorities. The tunnel was found at a yard used by food trucks to park at night, and according to reports, multiple shafts were being dug at the property.

Authorities, including Mexico’s National Guard, are closely monitoring the area where the tunnels were being constructed. The discovery of one tunnel that connected to an existing tunnel leading into the U.S. has raised concerns about illegal activities happening under the border.

This is not the first time tunnels have been found in the same area near the Tijuana airport, known as Colonia Otay Nueva Tijuana. In the past, five other tunnels have been discovered, making it a hotspot for illegal border activities.

Despite the discovery, details about the tunnel’s purpose and exit point are still unknown. Both U.S. and Mexican officials have remained tight-lipped about the situation, refusing to disclose whether the tunnel was intended for drug trafficking or human smuggling.

The proximity of the tunnel to a Mexico National Guard installation and customs offices adds another layer of intrigue to the story. While the agencies are not implicated in any wrongdoing, the discovery of the tunnel raises questions about border security and surveillance measures.

As the investigation unfolds, the potential impact of the tunnel on cross-border activities remains a topic of concern for law enforcement agencies on both sides of the border. Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story.
