Feds Uncover Drug-Smuggling Tunnel Between Tijuana, Otay Mesa

Federal authorities uncovered a "major" cross-border drug-smuggling tunnel between warehouses in Tijuana and Otay Mesa and seized about 14 tons of marijuana stashed inside it, officials announced today.

Members of the multi-agency San Diego Tunnel Task Force found the underground passageway on Tuesday, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

An ICE spokeswoman declined to release further details, including whether any suspects had been arrested in the case, pending a scheduled mid- afternoon news conference in Otay Mesa.
