On Thursday Oct. 22, ten tons of marijuana were seized from a tunnel with a rail-car that was designed to smuggle drugs from Tijuana into San Diego.

The passageway was ventilated, lit, built with metal beams, nine feet underground, and close to 2,600 feet long.

Sixteen people were detained on suspicion of drug trafficking and 873 packages of drugs were seized in this latest among many, recently discovered tunnels.
