On Wednesday, two more drug-smuggling tunnels were discovered along the San Diego-Mexico border and a 73-year-old Chula Vista woman was arrested for overseeing the logistics of the operation.
According to the federal complaint against Glennys Rodriguez of Chula Vista, she is the only person facing charges. However, others were named in the complaint, including one man who had been previously apprehended for constructing border crossing tunnels.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in San Diego said the tunnels, which extended hundreds of yards linking Tijuana, Mexico with an Otay Mesa industrial park, were elaborate and sophisticated systems embodying a multi-tiered electric rail system and ventilation equipment.
According to ICE, the tunnels were the sixth and seventh found in the area in less than four years. The tunnels were found by a U.S. task force working with Mexican law enforcement counterparts. Finding the tunnels will eliminate a multi-million dollar drug smuggling venture and will render all their efforts nothing more than a colossal waste of money on the part of the drug cartels," according to William Sherman, special agent for the Drug Enforcement Agency.

At this point, it is unclear how much, if any, drugs were transported through the tunnels, according to authorities.
Yeah, the love is overwhelming.
“Can’t you feel the love tonight...”
And you thought California’s high speed rail would never work.
These guys should have been hired for Boston’s Big Dig.
I think this warrants a Willie Green Memorial Ping.
Awwww........The tunnel of love. Just for you Jeb.
well, if the gum’ment can’t figure out if it’s a drug tunnel or not, then it might just as well be a human transport tunnel...but that wouldn’t be PC to say.
They’re just doing the work that Americans don’t want to do.
From what I understand, these rails went to Warehouses in San Diego. Everyone knows tunnels go to the Warehouses in the Border area. I think I even saw a TV show once where that was the plot. Glad they caught it.
I’d think they could have some sort of handle on it better but then, I guess you do have the Twin Plants, factories set up in both countries, that would seem to complicate matters.
