stretching nearly one mile from the Tijuana airport, Mexico, into the United States.

U.S. Border Patrol agents described the tunnel as the “most sophisticated they had seen,”

with an extensive rail-and-cart system to rapidly transport drugs, forced-air ventilation

and high-voltage electrical cables and panels.

The tunnel also had an elevator at its entrance and a complex drainage system.

The 4,300ft passage is believed to have been built by El Chapo’s Sinaloa cartel.

Cardell Morant of San Diego customs said:

“The sophistication and length of this tunnel demonstrates the time-consuming efforts

cross-national criminal organizations will undertake to facilitate cross-border smuggling.”

underground tunnel in order to smuggle millions of pounds’ worth of drugs into the US.
