530-metre-long 'narco-tunnel' found on US-Mexico border

US anti-drug teams found a 530-meter-long narco-tunnel used by drug smugglers 18 meters underground on the Mexican border.

Drug-fighting teams affiliated with the US Department of Justice found a 530-meter-long narco-tunnel used by drug traffickers 18 meters underground on the US-Mexico border.
It was determined that the tunnel connects the Mexican city of Tijuana and the city of San Diego in the state of California, USA. It was announced that the tunnel, which has ventilation, electric lighting and a rail transportation line, opened to a warehouse used by drug traffickers in the city of San Diego on the US side.
It was stated that within the scope of the operation, the US security forces detained 6 people for drug smuggling, and also seized 771 kilograms of cocaine, 74 kilograms of methamphetamine and 1.5 kilograms of heroin with a market value of 25 million dollars.
It was noteworthy that the tunnel emerged in the most sheltered part of the border wall, which was built by taking precautions against so-called tunnels during the period of former US President Donald Trump.
California state officials stated that since 2006, a total of 15 tunnels with electric lighting, ventilation, rail transportation and elevators have been unearthed on the Mexican border, such as this tunnel.
