Possible drug tunnel found in Tijuana near U.S.-Mexico border, officials say


A suspected drug tunnel has been found in Tijuana near the border with the United States, authorities said Tuesday.

Mexican officials informed federal agents with a Homeland Security Investigations-led task force about the discovery, said Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lauren Mack.

She said it was not known if the tunnel ended in the U.S.

According to Mexican media reports, the discovery was reported in the Castillo neighborhood of northern Tijuana. Mexican authorities were seeking a search warrant and had detained five people, the reports said.
