Feds Shut Down US-Mexico Drug Smuggling Tunnel
Federal agents have discovered a very long drug-smuggling tunnel under the U.S.-Mexico border.
The tunnel is 481-feet long, nearly two football fields. It runs from a home in Nogales, Ariz., to a home in Nogales, Mexico.
Federal officials said the huge smuggling tunnel is the longest one ever discovered in that area.
Authorities arrested three men on charges of smuggling marijuana and heroin. They confiscated more than 640 pounds of marijuana and a half pound of heroin.
The tunnel, approximately 2 feet wide and 3 feet tall, is wired for lighting and ventilation.
