Authorities discovered the longest smuggling tunnel ever on the Southwest border which spans over three-quarters of a mile from an industrial site in Tijuana, Mexico, to the San Diego area.
The tunnel boasted an extensive rail cart system, forced air ventilation, high voltage electrical cables and panels, an elevator at the tunnel entrance as well as drainage system.
There were no arrests or drugs found at the site or confirmed exit point in the U.S. — it was the length that baffled authorities.
“This one blows past (the second-longest),” said Border Patrol operations supervisor, Lance LeNoir.
“We never really thought they had the moxie to go that far. They continue to surprise me.”
