LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. federal agents have uncovered two drug-smuggling tunnels underneath the U.S.-Mexico border, both surfacing in San Diego-area warehouses and equipped with rail systems for moving contraband, officials said on Friday.
The discovery led to the arrest of a 73-year-old woman accused of running one of the warehouses connected to a drug smuggling operation, according to a joint news release by four federal agencies.
The tunnels were discovered as part of a five-month investigation by the so-called San Diego Tunnel Task Force.
here's my surprised face
As we all know the US and Mexico are very much in cahoots when it comes to the drug trafficking biz.
Maybe some newbie on the force found out about the tunnels and was raising a stink about it.
New agent: Hey everyone!!! I found drug tunnels!!!
Old agent: Damn it... Bob found some of the tunnels. I guess now we have to close those (sigh) put his a$$ on desk duty until we can dig some more.
