Drug tunnel ran from old KFC in Arizona to Mexico bedroom

Homeland Security Investigations

The passageway, which measured approximately 600 feet in length, was uncovered in the basement of the old quick-service establishment following a traffic stop in which its owner was found with large quantities of hard drugs. Upon a search, police found 168 kilograms of narcotics in two toolboxes.

According to the report, Lopez had 118 kilograms of methamphetamine, six grams of cocaine, three kilograms of fentanyl, 13 kilograms of white heroin, and six kilograms of brown heroin inside the toolboxes. "I would particularly note that just the three kilograms of fentanyl translates to over three million dosage units".

This tunnel drops 22 feet and stretches 590 feet into Mexico.

"Tunnels present an elusive and risky threat to our country", Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Porvaznik said.

Authorities say that the tunnel was being used to smuggle drugs across the border.

In 2016, a 792 metre-long tunnel was found by authorities in San Diego, California, also being used to transport illegal narcotics.

What we know about Don McGahn's cooperation with the Mueller probe
The smiling officer thanked Trump as he stood beside him at the lectern but made no comment on the president's remark. In his tweets , Trump said McGahn had cooperated with prosecutors with his approval "for purposes of transparency".

Authorities made the discovery last week and have arrested the Arizona building's owner.

The tunnel is 180 meters, height - 150 cm width - 90 cm It lies at a depth of 6.5 meters and leads up to the Mexican city of San Luis Rio Colorado, where it ends under the bed in the bedroom of one of private houses. Listening to Brown's remarks is U.S. Border Patrol Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony Porvaznik.

When asked how long the tunnel had been in operation, Brown replied: "I do not have a precise date when the tunnel was built".

Law enforcement then searched the KFC building and found the tunnel.

It was reported Lopez was seen leaving the KFC with the toolboxes earlier that day, which lead to police raiding the empty fast food joint. But in Arizona, authorities found a new structure that reminds us that tunnels come with interesting twists.

The tunnel will be sealed and filled with cement once investigations are wrapped up.
