VIDEO: Mexico police release shocking video of third drug tunnel found in less than a month near Arizona border
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by AZCENTRAL.COM:
TUCSON — Mexican authorities uncovered another tunnel in Nogales, Sonora — across the border from Nogales, Arizona — which they suspect was used to smuggle drugs and people across the U.S.-Mexico border.
It’s the third time they have made such a discovery in less than a month, and comes amid President Donald Trump’s demand for funding to build more physical barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The article goes on to state the following:
Mexican Federal Police on Wednesday posted a short video of the tunnel on Twitter. Police said the tunnel measured about 32 feet in length, but offered few other details, such as the location or how they found it.
The video shows two police officers opening up a manhole underneath the extensive drainage channels that lie below the downtown areas in the twin cities of Nogales. The channels are used to ease the flow of runoff water during storms and typically flow north from Sonora into Arizona because of the terrain. But they are also commonly used in smuggling attempts.
Mexico’s Federal Police tweeted on Wednesday, “As part of our service to provide security in the border area, federal police detected a tunnel almost 10 meters long, presumably used to commit illicit acts.”
