$22M Of Cocaine Entered The US Through An 800-Yard Drug Tunnel
Authorities say smugglers used a half-mile tunnel to haul $22 million of cocaine and 7 tons of marijuana from Mexico to the U.S.By Ben Lawson | April 21, 2016
This is the longest drug-smuggling tunnel ever discovered along the California-Mexico border.
Officials arrested six people Friday and seized more than a ton of cocaine and around 7 tons of marijuana. Officials say the cocaine alone is worth about $22 million.
The narrow tunnel spans more than 800 yards but could be even longer because its route zigzags.
