THE ‘MOST SOPHISTICATED DRUG TUNNEL EVER’

Sophisticated: Authorities discovered the entrance in San Diego's Otay mesa district, and found tracks (left) and a hydraulic lift    A 2,625ft-long drug-smuggling tunnel discovered running under the Mexican border has been described by police as the ‘most sophisticated ever’.
  The tunnel scheme, which links warehouses in San Diego and Tijuana, even has a hydraulic lift to take people and contraband underground.
  It is the latest in a spate of secret passages found smuggling drugs from Mexico into the U.S.
Mexican soldiers found the entrance on the south side of the border at a Tijuana warehouse, near the airport, after the U.S. opening was discovered.

‘It is clearly the most sophisticated tunnel we have ever found,’ said Lauren Mack, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Diego.

More than 70 have been found on the border since October 2008, surpassing the number of discoveries in the previous six years.
