Federal prosecutors say the tunnel is about 1,744 feet long and connects Tijuana, Mexico, to a warehouse in San Diego that's just east of the Port of Entry. At 61 feet deep and 4 feet in diameter, prosecutors said the tunnel has reinforced walls, a rail system, electricity and even a ventilation system. In a span of a few hours, agents watched five vehicles come and go from the stash house and this warehouse, we allege that the defendants were driving into the garage and loading or dropping off cardboard boxes full of drugs to further the movement or distribution of drugs throughout the United States, the federal agents were watching the whole time," U.S. Attorney Randy Grossman told ABC affiliate KGTV.

Law enforcement officers stopped the vehicles, seized drugs and arrested the drivers, according to prosecutors. At the warehouse, law enforcement found what they called a "sophisticated cross-border tunnel exit point carved out of the cement floor."Authorities seized 1,762 pounds of cocaine, 164 pounds of methamphetamine and 3.5 pounds of heroin. In a span of a few hours, agents watched five vehicles come and go from the stash house and this warehouse, we allege that the defendants were driving into the garage and loading or dropping off cardboard boxes full of drugs to further the movement or distribution of drugs throughout the United States, the federal agents were watching the whole time," U.S. Attorney Randy Grossman told ABC affiliate KGTV.

And people think Biden isn't doing anything about crime from Mexico? Between this and record apprehensions at the border, that's a pretty good setup if you ask me.
