A 2,625ft-long drug-smuggling tunnel discovered runningÂ under the Mexican borderÂ 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.
‘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.
