Drug smuggling will never stop! The Feds have found a 1,744-foot drug-smuggling tunnel between Tijuana and San Diego with $25 million in drugs seized by the U.S. and Mexican authorities and arrests made.
Complex has the details;
According to reports, the 1,744-foot tunnel was used to smuggle drugs from a residential home in Tijuana, Mexico all the way to a warehouse in the Otay Mesa community of San Diego, California. The elaborate passageway boasted several features such as electricity and a rail system in order to help the drug dealers remain proficient in their tasks.
Upon the shocking discovery, the feds confiscated approximately 1,700 pounds of cocaine, 164 pounds of meth, and 3.5 pounds of heroin from the warehouse at the tunnel’s where an exit point near San Diego. The narcotics are said to have a street value of about $25 million
While the recent revelation has yielded some very helpful facts in Home Land Security’s battle against drug trafficking, it remains unknown just how long this underground narcotics tunnel was in operation. Other law enforcement entities that took place in the drug raid included the San Diego Sheriff’s Department and the United States Border Patrol.
The collaborative effort resulted in the arrests of Mario Jaramillo (55), Adrian Enriquez (31), Manuel Perez (49), Juan Cruz (48), Vanessa Ramirez (31), and Luz de Luna Olmos (43). All suspects have been indicted on charges of conspiracy to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine, and heroin in the U.S.
These are some really elaborate tunnels they are making. Who are the architects they probably could make a lot of money if they went legit? You know how long it takes to make a tunnel like this and no one was probably looking at San Diego as the drop spot. Very smart on their end.
I am pretty sure the FEDS found this by accident or someone snitched.
