A drug-smuggling tunnel equipped with electricity, ventilation and a rail system has been found connecting San Diego, California, and Tijuana, Mexico.
Authorities seized more than eight tons of marijuana and 325lb (147kg) of cocaine in the discovery.
Officials have not revealed the exact length or location of the recently finished tunnel, but Mexican media report it is near Tijuana's airport.
More than 75 such secret tunnels have been discovered since 2008.

Obviously well-funded. By whom, I wonder?
They are already digging the next batch.
Does this mean we don’t have to use hundreds of buses?
Well, it actually operated, so we know Amtrak wasn’t involved.
End the WOD and give the people their freedoms back.
I bet it was the most profitable railroad in America.
If it has been in Massachusetts it would be 12 years behind schedule and $3 billion over budget.
Also called The Future Democrats’ Express.
I'm guessing that some of the beheaded corpses that litter the Mexican countryside are a result of "over budget."
Light rail and dope- sounds like a Democrat Underground party.
Well, the DEA collects the tolls, one way or another. An elaborate tunnel like this was probably ‘discovered’ because someone didn’t pay their fee to their government overlords.

Senate Approves Feinstein-Kyl Measure to Criminalize Border Tunnels By: Dianne Feinstein Date: July 13, 2006 Location: Washington, DC Senate Approves Feinstein-Kyl Measure to Criminalize Border Tunnels July 13, 2006 Washington, DC - The Senate today approved an amendment by U.S. Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) that would criminalize the act of constructing or financing a tunnel or subterranean passage across an international border into the United States. The amendment to the FY 2007 Senate Homeland Security Appropriations bill was approved by voice vote. Once the Senate votes to pass the appropriations bill, it will need to be approved in conference committee with the House of Representatives before it can gain final approval by the House and Senate and be sent to the President for his signature.
LOL. C'mon now. Amtrak operates. It's just that the cost for each seat is fifteen times more than the price of a ticket.
The border is a tunnel-free zone...
I know that area (Otay Mesa) very well. I saw the raid in 2005 or 2006 that shut down the biggest tunnel found yet. That tunnel was almost a mile long and came up in the precise location of the corner office of a warehouse building. A Border Patrol agent told me that they have no idea how many tunnels are down there. The soil there is hard decomposed granite and is perfect for tunneling. There are literally truck loads of people and contraband passing through. The cargo passes through the tunnels and into 18 wheel trucks. All of this is in addition to the other smuggling methods.
Jerry Brown finally got his high speed rail project started!
Obama built that!
Jerry Brown’s high-speed rail prototype, bringing new voters to Mexifornia.
Plant explosive rope the length of it, wait until it is full of miscreants, and detonate.
Wouldn’t it be fun to exploit after you found it?
- just wait at the exit way and grab ‘em
- Celine Dion at 150 DB
- fill with hydrogen & light ‘er up
- zombie costumes in the dark
I notice the article didn't say anything about arrests or rolling up a network or dealers.

These tunnel builders probably could build a fast, fully functioning health care website in a few days under budget.
