Officials Catch Truck Smuggling Drugs and Discover Something More

Police forces were on site when a U-Haul truck packed with 4,700 pounds of marijuana arrived in Bisbee Arizona. The stash was worth up to $3 million dollars.

Police received a tip about the vehicle and its contents and were on scene with Border Patrol’s canine unit. They were able to smell the marijuana. They discovered where the truck was going, which led them to a bigger discovery. The officers stopped at a house in the town of Naco and discovered an entrance to potentially the biggest drug-smuggling tunnel in the Tucson area.

U.S. Immigration, Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, sent out their best agents to investigate the tunnel. Investigators reported that the tunnel was 905 feet long, and could have potentially transported an endless amount of drugs between America and Mexico.

These tunnels have been appearing more and more over the years, as border patrol forces significantly increased. 168 tunnels have been discovered since 1990.

Special agent in charge of ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations in Arizona, Matthew Allen, released a statement, “With this discovery, we’ve dealt another significant blow to the Mexican drug cartels and proven yet again that going underground is not a workaround to evade law enforcement.”

2 men were arrested within the home, as well as the truck driver. It is still unsure who operates the smuggling ring and who mainly uses the tunnel for transporting the illegal substances.
